Local food projects and businesses come together to tackle food waste and poverty in charity cookbook.

FareShare Sussex are proud to announce the launch of a new community cookbook, featuring recipes from some of the area’s best restaurants alongside charities that provide meals for homeless and vulnerable people.cookbook

‘The FareShare Table’ was made possible through sponsorship from Higgidy Pies, who supply the charity with their surplus pies, restaurants 64 Degrees, Terre a Terre and Silo, and ice-cream makers Boho Gelato. Alongside delicious recipes from these sponsors, FareShare’s charity members who benefit from a regular delivery of surplus food also contribute, showcasing what brilliant meals can be created from food that would otherwise end up in landfill.

The cookbook is being sold to raise vital funds to keep the project running. Every month we deliver around 35 tonnes of food destined to be wasted, that instead provides thousands of meals to Sussex’s most vulnerable residents. This enables our 82 frontline charity members which include lunch clubs, homeless day centres and food banks, to free up funds to invest elsewhere and attract new clients to access their key services such as counselling, accommodation and signposting.

Caroline Henderson of Hove Luncheon Club, a FareShare charity member featured in the cookbook stated:

“Thanks to FareShare we are able to provide a high quality, low cost meal every week to isolated, vulnerable people. We can serve food that neither we as an organisation nor members of Hove Luncheon Club themselves are able to afford or cook.”

FareShare supporter and illustrator Katy Christianson donated her time to lovingly design the book, meaning that 100% of the funds raised from this project go straight to FareShare Sussex. The books cost £5 to buy, with each purchase paying for the delivery of food for 31 meals to those who need it most.
