The Awards recognise outstanding achievement in business and celebrate talent, ambition and innovation from across Wales’ capital city.
The FareShare Cymru South Wales Board, which recommended the charity’s entry to the Awards, said: “The positive environmental impact of FareShare Cymru is unquestionable, however, we are a very small organisation with limited resources…This award [would] help us make connections which are vital to the growth of our organisation.”
Sarah Germain, Project Manager at FareShare Cymru South Wales, says: “We may not have won an actual award on the night, but we definitely won in terms of making new friends across the business community, and getting the opportunity to tell potential funders and supporters about what we do and why we do it.”
FareShare Cymru South Wales received 500 tonnes of good surplus food in 2014-15, which it delivered to 38 charity members. This food went towards 1,182,460 meals which fed 6,823 people.
