On 25 December, charities across the UK will be serving up festive feasts made with food that we have saved from waste. It might be a local community centre or a city homeless hostel, but together they will make sure that no-one has to be alone without a good meal this Christmas.
Fareshare would like to share some of these stories with you, to say thank you for helping ensure that no good food goes to waste now or throughout the year.
It’s a feel good day. That’s what Christmas should be about.
Clare Johnson believes that no-one should be on their own on Christmas Day. It’s a belief that keeps her going through the manic moments of organising White Christmas, a festive dinner at Liverpool’s Titanic Hotel for vulnerable people on their own on Christmas Day.
This year’s dinner will be made with surplus food saved from waste by FareShare Merseyside. We caught up with Clare to find out how to make a festive feast for 500 people out of surplus food and to hear inspiring stories about what White Christmas means to their guests.
