According to WRAP (Waste and Resources Action Programme), the food and drink wasted in the UK increases by a massive 80 per cent over the Christmas period, with a staggering 230,000t of food binned during the festive season. The not-for-profit, government-funded group estimates that this may be worth £275m. Fareshare prides itself as a food supply organisation for the needy that is at the centre of two urgent issues; food poverty and food waste. Operating since 2004, the UK-based charity redistributes surplus food from supermarkets and food manufacturers, such as Sainsburys, Nestle and Sodexo, to community organisations including night shelters and women's refuges.
