5.6 million people in the UK live in ‘Deep Poverty’ making it difficult for them to buy everyday essentials like food. 3 million tonnes of food is wasted by the food and drink industry every year. Fare Share and Fare Share North East are doing something about it and you can too.
If you are a food supplier or producer you can put a good meal on the table of someone who is poor while saving yourself money and reducing landfill. If you are an individual you can get a group together at work or at home and donate cans of food for those in need. It’s not right that in one of the richest nations in the world people are going without food when so much is wasted.
Watch the video below and hear Mike Shields from Fare Share North East explain how you can make a difference to the lives of others.
