Seasoned helps tackle hunger and food waste

13 December 2021

The Seasoned team recently donated fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as perishable cakes, leftover from a recent conference that it provided catering for to FareShare Sussex, a food collection and distribution service. Established in 2002 by City Gate Community Projects, FareShare Sussex collected the surplus food from Seasoned, which would otherwise be wasted, and delivered it to those most in need across Sussex and parts of Surrey.

Seasoned Managing Partner Venues, Graham Turner, added: “Every year, 3.6 million tonnes of useable food is wasted by the UK food industry, yet at the same time, millions of people are struggling to afford to eat. “Our talented team works hard to create events for our clients and we are only too delighted to know that any left-over good food is not going to waste.” FareShare provides food to charities and groups that deliver services in addition to meals, such as advice and guidance, health support, counseling, and befriending, to help break the cycle of poverty and use food as a vehicle for good above and beyond alleviating hunger.

Graham added: “FareShare’s team of volunteers is doing a fantastic job. They take the food off our hands and distribute it to where it’s needed most – for us, this is a satisfying hassle-free alternative to the waste bin and we are delighted to support their much-needed service at every opportunity.” Anna Wheddon of FareShare Sussex said: “We would like to thank Seasoned for their generous donation. We are so pleased that they contacted us so that we could help avoid leftover food going to waste by delivering it to local charities.”
