Partnering with us during Covid-19

We are tremendously grateful to the businesses and other organisations who are partnering with us to help in various ways during the Covid-19 pandemic.




Our current partners include:

Brecon & District and Hay & District Dial-A-Rides helped us by delivering our food parcels to our clients so that they don’t have to come out to the Foodbank for several months.

Henllan Bakery donated us bread for four weeks, co-ordinated and delivered by PAVO.

PAVO has also administered the Emergency Covid-19 Grants Fund, which gave us a grant for extra hours for our manager for a month, renting extra space and buying items we need.

Brecon Morrison’s supermarket has started hosting a collection point, and also for several weeks sent us a substantial donation of food, and sometimes other items too such as books.

As well as continuing to host collection points in their Brecon, Talgarth and Hay stores, the Co Op supported us with their community fund so we can offer those who have a food parcel from us the chance to have a free bag of fruit or veg from the St John’s Centre food co op.

By arrangement with the Trussell Trust, Tesco gave us a donation of food for several weeks which British Gas kindly delivered.

Dwr Cymru gave us a donation from their community fund to spend on what we needed, plus water bottles to give to our clients.

B&M awarded us a grant of £1500 with which we were able order things we need from them.

Brecon NFU nominated us for a grant that we received, to spend on whatever we need during the current crisis.

The Community Foundation Wales awarded us a grant from their Coronavirus Resilence Fund, to pay for extra hours for our Foodbank manager for 3 months.

W W Bowen Ltd. gave us £500 to spend on whatever we need, and set up a fundraising button for us on their website.

The Alpkit Foundation gave us £100 which we can spend on whatever we need.

Cradoc’s Savoury Biscuits gave us donations of packets of their biscuits to give our clients.

Hay Deli commissioned a lovely image called ‘A Brighter Day’ for their shop window, and sold postcards of it in aid of the Foodbank.  They have also supplied us with vegan packs, regular donations of items for vegetarians, gluten-free etc., and sent us bulk donations of other items we needed for the warehouse.

Tails of Wales Dog Photography took photographs of people’s dogs while they were out for a walk, which could be bought for a donation that came to the Foodbank.

Neal’s Yard Creamery have set up a monthly donation of £200 to us, to help vulnerable people in these particularly difficult times.

B. Jenkins of Brecon have donated £500 to us.

The community housing association Barcud have donated £100 to help us help our clients at Christmas.

Black Mountains Preserves kindly donated a Mothers’ Day hamper to give to one of our clients.
