Carmarthenshire Food Network

Carmarthenshire’s Food Network is for anyone within the county who is supporting to feed its residents.

We’re joining together across the county to battle food poverty.

The inaugural meeting took place on February 10th 2021 with over 60 participants contributing.

The key principals of the network are to:

  • Connect with like minded individuals to alleviate food poverty across the county;
  • Share resources, skills, experience, knowledge and volunteers
  • Support one another to support our citizens

 

You are very welcome to join us. (Please see below)
