FARESHARE - Fighting Hunger, Tackling Food Waste

https://fareshare.org.uk/ 

We are the UK’s largest charity fighting hunger and food waste. We believe that no good food should go to waste. We redistribute surplus food to charities that turn it into meals. We are doers. We are a community. We change lives.  Fresh in date and good to eat surplus from the food industry, which would otherwise go to waste. Last year we managed 20,838 tonnes of food. We reach 1,960 towns and cities through our 21 Regional Centres, which can be found from Aberdeen to Brighton. 


Our Kitchen on the Isle of Thanet is heavily dependent of the charity FareShare. Sharon receives weekly van loads of food from FareShare that would otherwise go to waste. FareShare are instrumental in the work that Our Kitchen on the Isle of Thanet does to support the local Thanet community.

FEEDBACK - Feeding People, Backing the Planet

https://feedbackglobal.org/campaigns/gleaning-network/ 

Feedback’s Gleaning Network gives volunteers all over the country an opportunity to engage with the food system hands on by helping us rescue fresh, surplus fruit and veg from farms where it would otherwise be wasted, and get it to good causes. In doing so we are bringing an age-old practice to avoid waste, gleaning, into the 21st century. 


Feedback’s research has found that farmers waste around 16% of their crop before it even leaves the field or barn – often due to factors beyond their control, such as produce not being the right shape or size for supermarket tastes, or inaccurate forecasting by retailers of how much produce they will buy, leaving farmers with excess crop on their hands.  


We are working closely with Carrie Eeles and teams of volunteers from the Kent Gleaning Network. She has teamed up with Sharon ensuring that quality, locally sourced food goes back into the local community of Thanet. Kent Gleaning Network will be supplying cherries, potatoes and leaf vegetables to Summer Kitchen from the local farms in Kent.
