Today, on World Food Day, we’re very proud to announce that over 18,200 tonnes of food – the equivalent of over 40 million meals – has been redistributed to charities and community groups in Ireland and the UK using FoodCloud’s technology platform and redistribution network, in partnership with FareShare.
That food is saved from going to waste and represents potential savings of €54,600,000 to charitable groups who can spend the money they save on food costs on other programmes and services to help people.
Every minute, 28 meals are redistributed via FoodCloud and in 2018 alone over 15.4 million meals have gone to people instead of going to waste. We’re feeding bellies, not bins.
We could not do this without the help of our partners, suppliers, volunteers and supporters.
