CASE STUDY: Pembroke Dock Community Food Hub

FRAME is a small local charity in South West Wales supporting individuals with mental health, learning and physical disabilities. It has two retail outlets, they deliver and collect items and they have a number of employees along with an amazing volunteer workforce sharing time/skills and supporting the individuals involved.


Pembroke Dock Community Food Hub is run on a Saturday at FRAME’s Pembrokeshire Refill. At Pembrokeshire REFILL, they buy bulk quantities of high quality, sustainably sourced produce and sell straight from dispensers – minus the unnecessary and wasteful packaging surrounding almost every product found in a conventional supermarket. Products are sourced from local and ethical suppliers.


What is the involvement with the WCFD project?

Pembrokeshire Refill staff members take community food hub orders throughout the week and communicate directly with the local supplier, Fresh & Fruity, who is also a grower.


What aspect has been most useful?

FRAME were keen to have a community food hub at the refill shop because it keeps money local, supports a local business and sits with their no waste system ethos. They wanted to be able to offer unpackaged food that hadn’t travelled miles and the WCFD initiative helps with this.


What is the result of being involved in the project?

FRAME has created four new employment roles in the shop and want to maintain them by growing the business, so the WCFD initiative is supporting the commercial setting by offering unpackaged, local produce.
