Redistributing this food to the registered charities we serve, reduces their grocery bill, freeing up funds that can then be reinvested in other vital services like medical/financial support and counselling.
" So many people are benefiting from the food that would once have been wasted. Its really having a positive impact on a huge number of people who otherwise would manage without much of the variety of food they can access through what you supply. "
