We are delighted to share this guest blog from our friends at 1st Choice insurance

The team members are a pleasure to work with and as can be seen from this post, they really understand what food waste means and how it important it is for us to continue our mission to rescue good food from the bin.

“In a world where food waste is a persisting issue and community support is more valuable than ever, 1st Choice Insurance is proud to support the Shrewsbury Food Hub.

On Thursday 28th March, we hosted an Easter lunch for our staff, not only as a treat before the Bank Holiday weekend but also to raise money for the Shrewsbury Food Hub for everything they do to prevent waste and help the community, and to support their latest campaign for the Big Give Green match funding week.

Shrewsbury Food Hub is a volunteer-powered charity that works closely with local food businesses, supermarkets, and farms to collect surplus food, preventing it from ending up as waste, where it would contribute to environmental degradation. Instead, perfectly good food finds its way to individuals and families facing food uncertainty, ensuring that no one in our community goes hungry.

Not only does the Shrewsbury Food Hub go above and beyond preventing waste, they also provide education and resources to promote sustainable living practices and inspire people to help the environment.

It was amazing to see everyone come together as a team and enjoy homemade soup and baked goods, appreciating all of the on-going hard work that the team at Shrewsbury Food Hub do.

As a result of hosting our Easter lunch, we managed to raise £172.74 for their Big Give Green week, which then doubled to £345.48 as part of the match funding campaign!

We are honoured to be sponsors and to support everyone at the Shrewsbury Food Hub.
