The cruise operator donated more than $43,000 worth of food to Scottish good causes. The food was collected and then distributed by FareShare.
The entire team at FareShare Scotland are enormously grateful for the substantial food received from Fred. Olsen Cruises. This food will be hugely welcomed by thes hundreds of community organisations they serve supporting the elderly and vulnerable at home and in the communities during this very difficult time.
“We received over 10 tonnes of food from Fred. Olsen Cruises and that wonderful support is the equivalent of 25,000 meals to the most vulnerable people. That is the amazing difference this donation and others like it make to the lives of people in our communities. Heartfelt thank you from us all”.
FareShare Scotland supports over 800 charity and community groups across Scotland including hostels, day centres, lunch clubs and young people’s projects and during this really difficult time it’s becoming very clear that food is the glue bringing communities together. The need now is greater than ever.
