A BBC Radio piece shows the context FareShare currently works in – the show visits several organisations, 3 of which receive FareShare food to tackle issues to meet need in their communities.
As energy bills rise to their new capped level at the start of October, Leyla Kazim shares some inspiring stories of giving that she has heard while on the road with the BBC Food and Farming Awards.
Judging is currently underway for the Awards, which will be held for the first time this year in Wales.
Given the financial situation the UK is in, with food inflation at its highest rate since 2008, perhaps it’s no surprise that many of this years finalists are involved with getting food to people who are finding it harder to afford what they need.
From pay what you feel shops, to allotments providing food banks with fresh veg, and cooking for the community, in the face of increasing need, and straight after dealing with the Covid 19 pandemic, our finalists keep stepping forward to support those around them.
Organisations and individuals featured include: EMS Ltd in Hull, Big Bocs Bwyd in Barry, Mrs Mair Bowen from Kilgetty (Pembrokeshire), Mr Alun Roberts (Caernarfon).
