FareShare FoodCloud are running a project with local supermarkets which enables them to donate surplus food to local eligible charities/not for profits. They would be very interested to hear from any organisations in Somerset who might benefit from free surplus.
Over 2000 Tesco stores give their surplus food to local charities through FareShare GO. They are also currently trialling the scheme with Waitrose and hope to roll this out across the UK by the end of the year. In order to receive food, your organisation needs to be equipped to receive, store, prepare and serve food safely. You will be visited by one of the FareShare GO team to make sure that you use the food in accordance with relevant safety and handling guidelines.
