Bank holiday information - May

Bank holiday information for our services, including opening times and emergency contacts. All recycling collections will take place on the usual days.

Food banks + support

Locations, opening times and information on how to access food banks in Swansea. There is also information for people who wish to make a donation to a food bank.

For food banks that are usually open on Mondays, we have added details to the individual pages below of their opening times over the two May bank holidays.

Donations are welcomed - details on how to donate are listed in the information about each food bank below.

Food banks and food aid projects listed on this page are registered with Swansea Council and have either met a Food Hygiene Rating of 3 or above, or are awaiting inspection.   

Visit the Food Standards Agency to find out more about Food Hygiene Ratings. 

The majority of the food banks operate via a voucher and / or referral system: please do not let this put you off accessing this help when you are in need. The agencies that can help you with a referral or voucher will also be able to help provide additional support, including accessing benefit or debt advice.

Anyone can find themselves in a crisis situation, so please do not feel embarrassed about asking for help. The 'Hope in Swansea' app is a useful way of finding out what help to access food is available on the day you need it.

The organisations listed, and the services provided by those organisations, are not managed or governed by Swansea Council and Swansea Council has no control over the nature, content or availability of those sites.
