Big uplift as Covid bites


FOOD redistribution charity FareShare successfully signed up 150 more businesses during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The charity now works with more than 600 food businesses to divert surplus food that would have gone to waste to frontline charities. Causes benefiting from support include food banks, homeless hostels, breakfast clubs for children and domestic violence refuges.

Lindsay Boswell, chief executive of FareShare said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the number of new businesses getting in touch to divert their surplus food, or donating much-needed packets and tins.”
