Voluntary/Work Experience Projects

We have recently partnered up with Fareshare so that we can offer our customers some voluntary work placements. Fareshare is the UK’s largest Charity that fights hunger and food waste. They redistribute surplus food to charities that turn it into meals. This is where our customers step in. Every week we work with Fareshare to help pick, pack and sort the surplus food out. This gives a real sense of empowerment and achievement. We are always looking for exciting new projects that we can get our teeth stuck into.
