FareShare Sussex are thrilled to be chosen as a participating charity in the Big Give’s Green Match Fund. For one week only, every pound you donate will be doubled by the Big Give’s champions, until our target of £5000 is reached. Any donations over this amount will still contribute to our work preventing harmful CO2 emissions by ensuring food destined to be wasted is being redirected to the people in our communities who need it most.
“We have a moral obligation to do much better.”UN Secretary General António Guterres
UN Secretary General António Guterres has described 2021 as a crucial year in the fight against climate change, calling for more ambition and a commitment to work together despite the pandemic to “get the world back on track.”
Last year FareShare Sussex distributed 1,538.66 tonnes of food – the equivalent of 3.6 million meals, or 10,000 meals each day.
We want to do better. By expanding our work into new areas we can prevent more food from unnecessarily going to waste. We want to embed our trial of electric vehicles into our everyday operation with the hope to move towards a net zero distribution of surplus food.
This is why we are participating in the Green Match Fund and why we need your help.
Your donation will have twice the impact, starting at midday on Earth Day, Thursday 22nd April for ONE WEEK ONLY. Then sharing with your friends, family and on social media makes even more of a difference as you get more people involved in the fight against food waste.
So don’t forget to save the date: Thursday 22nd from midday. Check back on our campaign page to donate.
Thank you so much. We simply could not exist without your support.
