FareShare Cymru turns an environmental problem into a social solution, by working with food businesses to divert their edible surplus food to vulnerable people around Wales.
They have funding available to all food businesses in Wales to make it cost-neutral to donate surplus food to them, which is open for applications until 28 February 2022. The Surplus with Purpose Cymru fund can be used to cover costs including harvesting, labour, packaging, freezing and transporting food. Additionally, they would welcome a discussion with you about how else the fund could encourage donations. For example, if your surplus comes in large volumes; they could explore covering the costs of repackaging it into more easily-distributed sizes. Their mission is to ensure that if firms have commercially unviable food that could be used to feed hungry people, they work with you to prevent waste.
