Why are we partnering with FareShare?
Over 7 million people in the UK are said to be going hungry – which includes 2 million children. It’s estimated that at least 1.3 billion meals are being wasted every year across the UK, when they could be going to vulnerable people. FareShare is a charity that works with the food industry to get unsold or unwanted food to 10,000 charities every year. That makes a huge difference!
During the pandemic, FareShare worked harder than ever to make sure that the most vulnerable could get fresh food within their local community. The result? 1.1 million people were provided with the equivalent of 131 million meals. Incredible work.
There’s so much more to do, and we can help...
But the need for FareShare’s amazing support is stronger than ever. With the cost of living increase, FareShare needs all the help they can get to meet the needs of people at risk of hunger across the UK. And that’s where we come in.
