At Asda we hate waste of any kind. That’s why we’re stepping up our commitment to FareShare, an organisation dedicated to giving meals to people in need.
Skelmersdale CDC has worked with FareShare for the past two years to supply fresh meat, vegetables and ready meals. General Manager Darren Pettener said: "At Skelmersdale we have 350 colleagues with the skills to handle stock, process, pick and deliver food to FareShare. The food we send has packaging issues, or is planned ‘overs’.
“It would be a real shame to see that go to waste, so it’s great that through this partnership, colleagues across our depots can help by simply being conscientious and efficient while handling stock, in the knowledge that their efforts are going towards feeding 149,000 people every week.”
