In these difficult times it is more important than ever to help the vulnerable. Below is a statement from FareShare a charity we are proud to support. Please help if you can
1.People can donate food at donation points in many of their local supermarkets if they wish to help donate food to vulnerable people in their area.
2. People can donate financially direct to FareShare through our website fareshare.org.uk, as we may need to buy in some services in these extraordinary times.
3. People who are willing to travel can volunteer to help us in our warehouses and as van drivers – it will be hugely appreciated.
4. FareShare have an outstanding ask with Govt to urgently continue the Surplus with Purpose funding which helps the food industry get surplus food to charities – whilst the Coronavirus crisis develops – 2.25m tonnes of food is being wasted every year and FareShare have provided the means to access this food and get it to vulnerable people, it needs topping up from government urgently.
5. We want as much good to eat surplus OR donated food from the food industry as possible.
