Lime Venue Portfolio chooses FareShare as 2020 charity partner

78

Lime Venue Portfolio has pledged its support to FareShare, the UK’s largest charity fighting hunger and food waste as part of its ongoing CSR commitments including tackling food waste.

FareShare redistributes surplus food to local charities, who then turn it into meals for less fortunate or vulnerable groups.

To mark the beginning of the partnership, which will aid the charity throughout 2020, members of the Lime Venue Portfolio team volunteered time towards sorting, packing and distributing food around the country in the run up to the festive season.

Last year, FareShare redistributed nearly 21,000 tonnes of food that would have otherwise gone to waste, enough for 46.5 million meals. The charity operates across the UK, reaching nearly 2,000 towns and cities through its 21 regional centres.
