Big Bocs Bwyd

The Big Bocs Bwyd at Cwmfelin Primary School


The Big Bocs Bwyd is a Welsh Government project that has been introduced to help poverty in local communities, reduce food waste and to provide hands on learning opportunities for pupils. The Big Bocs Bwyd works on a 'Pay as you Can' basis and therefore, customers only need to make a small donation of what they can afford, to buy the products they need. The food and toiletries provided will be donated from supermarkets which helps them reduce the amount of food waste they produce. 


After many months of planning, we successfully launched the opening of our Big Bocs Bwyd on Thursday 21st October 2021. We have been extremely lucky to have lots of support from businesses in our local community. They have donated surplus food and toiletries to us in a bid to help families in our school and local community. We would like to say a special thank you to Morrison's in Baglan, Tesco in Maesteg, Sainsbury's in Bridgend, Maddock Kembrey Meats in Maesteg and WEPA (The Paper Mills). 


Our opening days are:

Tuesday 2nd November - 8.30am- 9.15am

Tuesday 2nd November - 2.30pm - 3.45pm

Friday 5th November - 2.30pm - 3.45pm


We will only be accepting cash donations at the moment.

Please bring your own carrier bags. Reuseable hessian bags can be bought for £2 in The Big Bocs Bwyd.
