School's call for food parcel funding for Coronavirus crisis-hit families

Ysgol Cwm Brombil will distribute emergency supplies

A Port Talbot is getting set to provide emergency food parcels to families who have had the rug pulled from under them thanks to measures imposed to deal with the spread of Coronavirus.

Ysgol Cwm Brombil in Margam is at the frontline for families struggling to provide food and electricity at a difficult time, and have set up a GoFundMe campaign to put together supplies with the help of local companies.

Nicola Thomas is the Community Engagement link at the School 

"Our school is the hub of the community and as such we would like to support as many people as we can.

"Its not just our free school meals families, its families who ave lost their jobs due to Coronavirus so they are down an income, its families of single parents so they can't actually get out to do their shopping because they've got their children with them"

"We are raising money to ensure no one goes hungry at this time, any monies received will enable us to provide food/care packages to those in our community most in need.

"We will set up a food support bank where those most in need can contact us and either collect an emergency food hamper or one will be delivered to them."
