FareShare's October Success

On the 6th and 7th of last month, Sainsbury's Million Meal Appeal - an 18-year-long partnership with the national FareShare network - saw the donation of 2 million meals to those in need, exceeding the total of last year's event! A great start to October, and it only got better for our guys at FareShare North West, with something of a media flurry breaking out as the days rolled by.

On the 10th, Oxfam's Harriet Knowles wrote an article pronouncing FareShare NW as "Food Heroes". Harriet was amazed at the amount of food a small, volunteer-dependent organisation can distribute, and you can read her kind words here.

And we're not finished yet. On the 16th - World Food Day - The Independent ran a story written by Lindsay Boswell, CEO of FareShare. Lindsay highlighted the rising issue of tackling hunger in the UK and explained FareShare's vital work in providing proper breakfasts before school for children all over the country. There's also a video starring our very own Mr. Hollywood, Seb! Check it out!
