Food Poverty Link Officer (Caerphilly)

This short-term project utilises the Food Poverty Grant from Welsh Government, and the Food Poverty Link Officer will provide support to the Lead Volunteer/Officer within each of the Food Bank outlets and other community food poverty initiatives identified within the local authority area of Caerphilly.


The Food Poverty Link Officer will help outlets to extend and improve their services, and support them to link users with services delivered by the Statutory, Public and Private Sector. The Officer will help them with bids for the Food Poverty Small Grant Scheme and support them with improving their sustainability.

Please read through the Criteria document before starting an application. You’ll see examples of what you could request a grant for – this isn’t an exhaustive list but should be used as a guide.

Here are some key points:

  • Your organisation must have a bank account in its own name

  • You cannot claim for costs already incurred

  • Your application must be submitted by 31 August 2020

  • If your grant is approved, spending must be complete and funding drawn down by 30 September 2020

This is a valuable opportunity for you to think about what your local community needs, and how you could develop your service to help alleviate food poverty for the people you support.

If you would like to arrange to meet with Michelle (GAVO Food Poverty Link Officer) to talk about the grant and what it could mean for your organisation / group, or if you would like support with making your application, please get in touch.
