Supplier donates £10,000 of fruit and vegetables to food charity FareShare

Regionally-sourced produce supplier From My Farm has donated £10,000 worth of fruit and vegetables to charity.

The donation was made over the Christmas period through the community food network charity FareShare, which normally collects food that would otherwise go to waste and distributes it among deserving organisations.

The donation was the first in a developing partnership between From My Farm and FareShare to provide grade A seasonal produce to needy causes such as homeless shelters, women's refuges, luncheon clubs for the elderly and clubs for children around the country.

From My Farm commercial manager Rick Sanderson said: "We are passionate about supporting worthy causes that have a positive impact in the regions from which we source. We are truly excited about our partnership with FareShare because it is such a 'win-win' for everyone involved.

"Not only do we help some of the most needy in society through combating food poverty, but we also support our sustainability targets."

FareShare food sourcing coordinator Amy Cohen said: "This great supply of food came in the run-up to Christmas, allowing our community members to prepare some lovely seasonal cooked veg.

"There is an obvious synergy between ourselves and From My Farm and we are looking forward to an ongoing partnership."
