After originally operating as an outreach project through Telford Food Share in 2020, Newport Food Save and Share established themselves as an independent organisation in February 2021. Since then, they have seen the number of people they support with food grow from around 30 to 300.
Swedish electric car brand Polestar recently opened its new retail Space at the Touchwood Centre, Solihull by hosting a launch event with a sustainable twist. Guests, including members of the media, were asked to bring a tote bag of non-perishable food, which was then matched by Polestar and donated to FareShare Midlands.
Between Friday 22nd April and Friday 29th April, FareShare Midlands has been selected to participate in The Green Match Fund 2022 online. The food redistribution charity is aiming to raise £10,000 in matched funding, to deliver 40,000 meals to people in the Midlands struggling with the rising cost of food and energy. By using surplus food in this way, FareShare Midlands will also stop 17 tonnes of food from being wasted.
Coping on your own in 2022, with rocketing fuel bills and rising cost of living, is hard enough. Add four young children into the mix in your new role as a single dad, and it all becomes that much tougher to make ends meet. Read about James Henman and Gussie's Kitchen.
Between Friday 22nd April and Friday 29th April we are aiming to raise £10,000.
This will help us redistribute 40,000 meals of surplus food that would otherwise go to waste and will also save 17 tonnes of food from going to waste.
