We also support a wonderful charity which works tirelessly to prevent food waste. They re-home food that would otherwise end up in land fill and volunteers help to make sure it gets to soup kitchens, shelters, churches and charities that rely on donations to help thousands of people within the UK living in food poverty.
As an ambassador for PlanZheroes, Shannon (our director) makes monthly donations from sales of our jams and preserves, gets stuck in and hands on with their fundraising events and regularly posts recipes for people to follow at home to help use up everyday ingredients.
A little bit from PlanZheroes - Thanks to the support of our partners and funders, we’ve grown tremendously over the last few years. Our food donation platform currently has over 1,000 business, charity and volunteer members and we are beginning to expand our work outside of our home base in London. We’re now redistributing 5 times as much food to good causes annually as we were in 2015.
We work with a wide range of businesses throughout the supply chain from food growers and producers to caterers and local bakeries. Over 50% of the food we redistribute is fresh, nutritious food including fruit & vegetables, meat, fish, dairy and eggs.
