Sainsbury’s teams up with FareShare on online donation scheme
As an extension of its in-store food donation programme, Sainsbury’s is now allowing customers to make online donations to the FareShare food waste and hunger charity as part of their weekly shop.
All funds raised by Sainsbury’s and its customers will go towards purchasing food for redistribution across FareShare’s network in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
In a statement, the supermarket said making a donation of as little as £1 could provide food for two meals at a family day centre while £2 could provide food for five breakfasts at a children’s breakfast club. Meanwhile, £5 could provide food for 12 lunches at an elderly isolation club and £10 could provide food for 24 meals at a community café.
Judith Batchelar, director of Sainsbury’s brand, said: “We are proud to have been a founding partner of FareShare since its inception over 25 years ago and we are delighted to be able to continue our work with the charity, while offering new ways for our customers to donate. With increasing pressure on community groups and charities, we are committed to further support our mission to feed the nation and work with our longstanding partners to help the communities we all serve.”
