Winter Sale Schools Visit FareShare

6 December 2017

This week our Young Marketeers winter sale schools had an eye-opening visit to the FareShare depot in London.

Students from four Southwark schools had the chance to witness the 8,000 tonnes of ‘fit for purpose’ products rescued from waste from the food and drink industry and heard about the charities that help to redistribute good food to those who need it most.

Our Young Marketeers were then tasked with putting together an order to be delivered to a charity in Elephant and Castle who transform the food into nutritious meals for vulnerable families.

The students will be selling freshly baked bread and soup made from surplus ingredients at the Winter Sale on February 6th at Borough Market with all funds going to FareShare.
