Homeless and hungry

The homeless of Cardiff are left hungry as weather conditions deteriorate and less people donate food.


Local homeless man, Stuart Jones

According to Stuart Jones, who has been homeless for more than 4 years now, “90% of the food I eat is given to me on the streets”.

This can include cheeseburgers and other fast-food produce.

However,  recent miserable conditions in Cardiff have resulted in a significant decline in food contributions from good samaritans and those who aid the poor.  As Stuart explains, “nobody does their shopping in this weather”.

Although the homeless bus offers food such as toasties and sandwiches, the service only runs between 6:30pm and 9pm, Thursday to Sunday.

Unless weather conditions in Cardiff improve, it looks like it might be a tough winter for the homeless.
