FareShare, the UK’s biggest food waste charity, is continuing its campaign to help turn more surplus food into meals for people in need, with the help of food and drink retailers, manufacturers and foodservice operators. The food given will be distributed to 8,500 frontline charities and community groups across the UK, reaching a wide variety of those in need including school breakfast clubs, older people’s lunch clubs, homeless shelters and community cafés. Each week, FareShare is able to provide enough food to make almost a million meals for vulnerable people.

Speaking about the initiative, Simon Millard, Director of Food at FareShare has said, “We know that surplus food can be put to good use – it’s what we do. In 2022-23, 91% of the food we provided was excess that otherwise would have gone to waste.

By signing up, your business’s seasonal surplus can make a huge difference to the lives of people across the UK.” To sign up and prevent good food from going to waste, food businesses are encouraged to visit http://fareshare.org.uk/winterfood and fill in the form – FareShare will do the rest.
