apetito partners with FareShare to tackle food poverty

Care homes meal provider apetito has announced a partnership with food distribution charity FareShare.

FareShare takes donated surplus food from the food industry and redistributes it to 8,500 charitable organisations across the UK. In 2023, FareShare redistributed over 54,000 tonnes of food, enabling the organisations it works with to provide around one million meals per week.

Before Christmas, apetito donated over 8,000 individual Christmas puddings, and is now giving FareShare over 2,000 Victoria sponge and chocolate celebration cakes, which are being distributed to charitable organisations in Newcastle, Manchester, Glasgow, Leeds, Edinburgh, and Southampton.

FareShare CEO George Wright said: “Here at FareShare we are delighted to establish a partnership with apetito UK & Wiltshire Farm Foods – a collaboration which was cemented when the apetito’ team provided a quantity of fabulous Christmas puddings, which were quickly distributed through the FareShare network to charities and community groups supporting those in need.

“We are looking forward to building on this relationship and ensuring that no good food goes to waste, through regular food collections and redistribution both locally and nationally.”

Lee Sheppard of apetito said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with FareShare, an organisation that shares our values and profound commitment to making a real difference.

“At apetito, we recognise the importance of addressing food waste and this partnership supports our pledge to ensuring our surplus ingredients and meals are going to help those who really need it. Whilst we previously sent no food waste to landfill, it’s extremely rewarding to now know that any waste food that would have been sent for energy recovery, is now able to support charities and organisations doing incredible work.”
