We’re delighted to let you know that this week we reached a really significant milestone on our food surplus journey – we’re celebrating half a million meals donated from our stores to those in need through our partnership with FoodCloud!
Over the last 8 months, we’ve rolled out the FoodCloud app and food donation routines to over 100 of our stores, with the rest to come over the next few months.
Over 250 charities are receiving food donations from us each week to help support their community causes which includes helping the homeless, meals on wheels delivery services or weekly socialising dinners for the elderly.
We want to lead in reducing food waste as a business, and while we try our best to minimise and manage our food surplus in store, there will always be some perfectly good food left over at the end of the day. Partnering with FoodCloud has given us a great way to get this surplus food to those who need it most in a simple and effective way rather than wasting it – so it’s not only a great thing for us to do for the community, but good for our business too!
A big well done to everyone involved in helping to redistribute so many meals to those in need.
