What did the officials say?
GWR Catering Operations Manager Sarah Creaser says:
“We have a number of colleagues across the business who are active in their local community who were asking what more they could do to help, and one of the ideas that regularly came up was to help provide food and drinks, from our on board snack range, to those most in need.
“Rather than let food go to waste, where we have been made aware of a requests for help we have been able to work with our partners at Rail Gourmet do so, supporting the communities we serve.”
Labour MP for Swansea East Carolyn Harris said:
“Thank you to all of the businesses including GWR who are continuing to help with our efforts to feed vulnerable people and local NHS workers in Swansea. Together with amazing individuals from across our community and Swansea Council we’re helping to support people throughout this pandemic.”
