School Holiday Food Hampers

Last year our ‘School Holiday Food Hamper’ initiative was a real success, with lots of families benefiting. As a result, we are running the initiative again this year.

It’s available to MVH tenants whose children are entitled to free school meals throughout the school holidays.

The aim of this project is to support families and their children to eat healthy meals and to attend enriching activities, in the hope of tackling the holiday hunger.

We will provide one food hamper, per household which should cover breakfast and lunch provisions for the 6 weeks holidays.

Families can collect their hampers or we can deliver.

Basic food hamper will be available on the 25th and 26th July 2019 and will be available from:

  • Merthyr Valleys Homes Head Office, Gellideg
  • Trelewis Community Centre, Macintosh Terrace, Trelewis.

To receive the hampers the family must be:

  • Merthyr Valleys Homes tenants
  • The children in the family will need to be in receipt of free school meals during term time.

If you would like to receive a hamper or are aware of any families in need please contact the Community Wellbeing team on  or 01685 727816

 Referrals will only be accepted up to and including 21st June 2019.
