Volunteers worked alongside Caerphilly Council staff to help deliver meal packages to eligible pupils throughout the county borough in readiness for half term
Eligible families throughout Caerphilly County Borough recently received free school meal packages thanks to support from construction firm Willmott Dixon.
The company is working in partnership with Caerphilly County Borough Council to deliver its ambitious new house building programme. This programme will see the first new Council homes built in the county borough in almost 20 years.
As part of the Willmott Dixon’s social value commitments, as outlined in its 2030 ‘Now or Never’ sustainability strategy, volunteers worked alongside Caerphilly Council staff to help deliver meal packages to eligible pupils throughout the county borough in readiness for half term. Meal packages included a wide range of supplies, including ready meals, bread, milk, fresh fruit, and vegetables.
The Council’s service, which began at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, has received national praise for its approach and has seen a total of over 1.9 million meals delivered to families throughout the county borough.
Cllr Sean Morgan, Leader of Caerphilly Council, said:
“I’d like to thank everyone involved in delivering this key service and to Willmott Dixon for their support.
“With many families currently experiencing the effects of the cost of living crisis, our free school meal programme has never been more important. Seeing volunteers from across the Council and partner agencies working together to support our residents, in what is a huge logistical task, truly embodies the Team Caerphilly ethos.”
Neal Stephens, Regional Managing Director at Willmott Dixon commented:
“This initiative from Caerphilly Couty Borough Council is making a significant difference to so many families in the area and we are proud to be involved. Not only are we committed to supporting the communities where we build, but the projects we’re currently building in Caerphilly mean we have employees who both live and work in the area, who are keen to help in any way they can.”
