FareShare Cymru is based on the outskirts of Cardiff and serves charities and community organisations across South Wales.
FareShare Cymru saves surplus food from waste, which they provide to 136 organisations, including homeless shelters, school breakfast clubs and community centres.
Caerphilly People First has recently signed up to this scheme, and for a fixed payment we receive a weekly package of food, which we use in the office throughout the week.
Caerphilly People First are helping the people who have been allocated flats in Newbridge with basic food and hygiene and cooking skills. This Monday Fran taught them how to cook spaghetti bolognese and the group finished off with a simple banana custard for dessert. The cookery class was enjoyed by all and everybody said they were confident enough to repeat this recipe when they move into their own homes.
Recently Caerphilly People First took part in a six week course on Food and Hygiene. Ffion, Kath, Nicole, Sharon, and Luke from Caerphilly People First took part and I am pleased to tell you that we all passed the exam. Thanks to Menna for being such a good teacher.
