8 December 2014: The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG)) enquiry into Hunger and Food Poverty, co-chaired by Frank Field MP and the Bishop of Truro, Tim Thornton, is today publishing its final report.
FareShare welcomes the launch of this report and is encouraged to see that the APPG has taken on board our input in to the debate around what is needed to enable a fairer redistribution of surplus food in the UK.
Good food should always go to feed people first and we firmly believe that in order to address the issue of hunger in the UK, we need to build a food redistribution system that is both sustainable and robust. FareShare currently provides enough food for 13.2 million meals and supplies over 1,711 charities and community organisations across the UK.
