Join us in celebrating the annual harvest by raising awareness of what the act of giving means to those of different faiths and nationalities. Donate what you can from Monday 16th - Friday 20th October. 






Harvest Festival Food Bank 

From Monday 16 to Friday 20 October, we will provide a number of Food Banks across the University, in support of giving back to the local community. We invite staff and students to give whatever they can afford but ask that they ensure their donations are non-perishable goods. All food collected will be donated to the Rhydfelin Food Bank. Please visit any of the following locations to donate:

Cardiff – The Zen Bar

Pontypridd – Students’ Union & The Meeting House

Newport – The Students’ Union office


Harvest Festival Ceremony 

To bring together students and staff of all faiths and nationalities at USW, the Chaplaincy services will hold a harvest ceremony, which will take place on Tuesday 24 October at 7pm in the Meeting House. The ceremony is open to people of all faiths and will be an opportunity for students and staff to share their stories of what the Harvest Festival and the act of giving means to their faith or nationality.
