Fare Share Scheme: Fighting Hunger, Tackling Food Waste

With the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the Coronavirus lockdown, many families are still struggling to buy food from supermarkets. We all hope that the country will see less panic-buying and fuller shelves in the coming weeks, but many families that are now in different financial situations may need extra support.

Here at Tops, we want to help give families as much advice as we can through these difficult times. The Fare Share scheme, set up to help fight hunger and food waste in the UK can help anyone struggling to buy food.

Fare Share is a national network of charitable food redistributors who take good quality surplus food to charities and communities all over to reduce food waste and provide for those who need it. The food is all in-date and still in great condition and is sent to charities so that it can be reached by schools, homeless shelters, breakfast clubs, vulnerable people and communities.

Fresh, tasty and in-date food is saved from all over so that it can reach those who need it and is delivered to Trussell Trust Food Bank. If you are struggling in any way, go to their site and find your nearest food bank, they are all over the south so it will be a great help to parents at our nurseries!

If you are able to help or work for a company that can help, you can also get in touch with Fare Share to volunteer or donate.
