Food rescue
  • Every morning our volunteers collect from 22 suppliers 

  • We collect fruit, veg, bread and store cupboard food which they have left over

  • It’s like food roulette - one day it will be 30 trays of bread, the next 30 of fruit and veg

  • Built a team of 105 regular volunteers

  • Saved CO2 equivalent to driving 56 times around the world

Where does rescued food go?
  • Any non-profit group or charity can receive food from the Food Hub

  • We share food with 56 groups, reaching more than 2000 people in the town every week

  • Our groups save an average of 34% of their food budget

In the next 3 years we plan to
  • Work with local farmers and wholesalers to save more fresh fruit, veg and eggs

  • Save more nutritious chilled and frozen food

  • Co-ordinate the Shropshire Food Poverty Alliance
