Falkirk district charities and community groups are being encouraged to sign up to receive regular donations of surplus food from supermarkets.

FareShare, the UK’s largest food redistribution charity, provides frontline organisations with desperately needed resources every day via the FareShare Go app, text or email.

Tesco, ASDA and Waitrose all donate surplus product to the programme to prevent quality food from going to waste.

Lindsay Boswell, FareShare chief executive, said: “Through our FareShare Go scheme, we work closely with retailers to ensure that no good food goes to waste, and ends up on people’s plates instead of landfill.

“We know that there are thousands of people going hungry across the UK and many frontline charities and community groups are offering much needed support where they can. I would urge any organisation to sign up to FareShare Go and access free surplus food.”

To register for donations, visit the FareShare website.
