As part of our commitment to sustainability we work hard at Greencore to ensure that no good food goes to waste – particularly when it can do so much good in our local communities.
Our team in Northampton has worked closely with The Bread and Butter Thing, a charity that aims to make life more affordable for people on a low income, builds stronger communities and reduces food waste using an innovative and self-sustaining approach to the redistribution of surplus food and non-food items.
Most recently the team donated more than 7,100kg of good surplus food, which is the equivalent the equivalent of 18,000 meals to those in need.
“It’s been an absolute lifeline for me. TBBT has helped turnmy life around and helped me sleep at night. I feel lessstressed, I don’t shout at the kids as much & we are alleating better than we have in years.”
