Spirit of Manchester Awards win
We’re delighted that FareShare Greater Manchester scooped the Spirit of Manchester 2014 Best Partnership Award for their Too Good to Waste Initiative. The accolade, awarded on 25 September, recognised the collaboration between Manchester Markets, Fairfield Environmental Services, EMERGE 3Rs and FareShare to save and redistribute good food that would otherwise go to waste from New Smithfield Market. This surplus fruit and veg is then redistributed to FareShare Greater Manchester’s partner charities feeding vulnerable people in the city.
The Spirit of Manchester Awards celebrate the excellent work carried out in Manchester’s voluntary and community sector. As well as providing recognition, the awards aim to raise the profile of the sector amongst the general public and encourage local giving and active citizenship.
