The Centre has partnered with national charity FareShare to provide food to our most vulnerable community members and groups.
FareShare is a UK-wide charity fighting hunger and food waste, they redistribute good food that would otherwise go to waste to frontline charities and community groups that support vulnerable people.
For more than 24 years FareShare has been working with the food industry to identify quality, in date surplus food that can be redistributed to charities. FareShare reaches over 1,500 towns and cities, providing food for 36.7 million meals a year and supporting 772,390 people every week.
The 9,653 charities and community groups that receive food through FareShare provide a lifeline to vulnerable people, including homeless hostels, children’s breakfast clubs and lunch clubs for older people.
We have been receiving our weekly collections from from the Lutterworth branch of Waitrose thanks to Andy and the team.
