Shrewsbury Food Hub is one of the charities Winter Carols on the Doorstep will be supporting on Wednesday, Dec 16th at 6pm - and you are all invited to sing with us from your doorsteps!
Our brilliant volunteers have created this video (below) to highlight how much food would usually go to waste over Christmas – in one day last year we rescued 4000 mince pies (3 car loads!). Since last year we have increased our suppliers, now collect 7 days a week, and have our own van; so who knows how many tonnes of mince pies, parsnips, tangerines and other good food we will save from going to waste this Christmas.
It takes a true community partnership and team effort to save all this good food at Christmas– from the staff at the supermarkets who work very hard to get the food safely organised for collection committed volunteers who give up precious family time to collect and distribute food, partner groups who provide an access point for the community to come and collect food and all the people who come along to FoodShares to creatively use up the surplus food.
Get those voices warmed up and rally up your neighbours!
