Our volunteers hit the road early to collect surplus food before heading back to the depot. Once received, another team will begin to sort the food to be shared with local charities, schools and other community groups including popular Foodshare tables where everyone is welcome.
We support 50+ community groups including charities that support the homeless, mental health charities, schools, youth clubs and day centres for the elderly. We also support 15 community foodshares across Shrewsbury town.
“The food provided by the Food Hub has made such a difference to our pupils’ readiness for learning in the classroom, as many come to school not having had breakfast.”
“I come to the Foodshare because I hate waste, it’s very social and helps the budget, especially with the cost of living at the moment. There’s a variety of stuff, not just the basics and it introduces me to new foods.”
The surplus food we collect from suppliers supports incredible organisations and groups that nourish our community. This includes charities supporting the homeless, the old, the vulnerable and those on low incomes. We save them money and freeing up their budget means they can do more.
Our food also supports community Foodshares and fridges where everyone is welcome to collect a few bags of food to help stop food waste and stretch household budgets.
