Puffin Produce, the suppliers of fresh Welsh produce, have donated their Blas y Tir potatoes to Pembrokeshire Foodbank over the festive period.

Pembrokeshire Foodbank provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people across the county who are referred to them in crisis.

They manage a network of food bank centres within Pembrokeshire located in Haverfordwest, Pembroke Dock, Fishguard, Neyland and Narberth, staffed by dedicated volunteers.

Over 350 Blas y Tir potato packs were delivered to the Pembrokeshire Foodbank centre in Haverfordwest and will be put towards the provision of food parcels at the five centres for vulnerable people living in food poverty.

Pembrokeshire Foodbank are part of a nationwide network of 428 foodbanks, supported by the Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

Puffin Produce Chief Executive Officer Huw Thomas said: “Pembrokeshire Foodbank does incredible work to support the vulnerable people in our community.

“Sadly, more and more people need the help of food banks, and nothing gives us greater pleasure than to support those in need in our local community, particularly at Christmas time.”

Pembrokeshire Foodbank was founded in 2014 by local churches and community groups, working together to stop hunger in Pembrokeshire.

In 2020/21, The Trussell Trust’s Foodbank Network provided 2,537,198 three-day emergency food supplies and support to UK people in crisis. Of these, 980,082 went to children.
