give a little love
This summer, there are families in our community who need help more than ever.
That’s why we’re working with our farmers to redirect enough fresh food to provide more than 4 million portions of fruit and healthy snacks to families in need.
And what’s more, we’re donating £200,000 to food bank charity The Trussell Trust, and helping food banks in the network support over 55,000 local families.
FROM OUR FARMS TO FAMILIES IN NEED
We’re working with our farmers to redirect enough fresh food to provide more than 4 million portions of fruit and healthy snacks to families in need this summer.
We’re proud of our reputation for working closely with our farmers and suppliers to provide deliciously fresh, high-quality produce.
Now, we’re using these long-standing relationships to bring food from farm to family. More specifically, those families who need it most.
We’re asking our farmers to donate surplus fresh food, making sure nothing that can be eaten is left behind. Our goal is to gather enough to provide more than 4 million portions of fruit and healthy snacks, including tomatoes and cucumbers, to children who need them most.
“We're so proud to be part of this programme, donating healthy fruit we source from around the world to families with a real need. Hopefully we can all work towards changing lives for the better.”
