Canolfan y Fron near Caernarfon, Gwynedd is delighted to be awarded £3,000 to prepare hot food to residents living in Tryfan Ward. The money will allow the community centre to distribute up to 40 two course meals, for FREE, once a week.
The scheme has been operational for three weeks, with the first few weeks a great success and local people delighted with the scheme. Over 100 people have received warm healthy meals, by the great team of volunteers at Canolfan y Fron.
The community centre was successful with its application for the funding thanks to the support of the local county councillor for Tryfan Ward, Arwyn Herald (pictured in red jacket above with the hard working chefs).
Councillor Arwyn Roberts said “I’m thrilled with the success of the new scheme. It allows residents living in this area to come together and access hot, fresh food. In addition to the quality food offered, the scheme allows this rural community to come together, in a comfortable community venue which is very important during this cost of living crisis.”
The service at the centre will continue for the coming weeks and Councillor Roberts is encouraging the local residents to make use of the service provided.
“I must thank the individuals who work hard here weekly to order the ingredients, prepare the meals and wait on the residents. They are worth their weight in gold, diolch yn fawr iawn!”
In order to ensure that no food is wasted, a menu will be placed in the centre for the following week’s menu.
To order your free two course meal, every Thursday between 12:00 and 2:00, pop into the shop or send a text to 07932 101983.
