Moy Park donates 150,000 meals to FareShare charity

One of Europe’s largest chicken processors, Moy Park, has donated over 150,000 meals since teaming with FareShare in 2015. 

The milestone achievement comes after Moy Park has contributed to tackling hunger by donating over 68 tonnes of fresh surplus chicken. The donations were distributed across FareShare’s network of 21 regional centres and reach homeless hostels, breakfast and lunch clubs, domestic violence refugees and community cafés across the UK.

“Moy Park is proud to be involved in such a worthwhile initiative with FareShare,” commented Paddy Molloy, account manager at Moy Park.

“By working together, companies across the supply chain can make a difference to those in need and we are happy to support FareShare to put our surplus product to the best use possible. We believe it is important to engage with our local communities and, through our partnership with FareShare, to support the great work they do.”

FareShare aims to tackle hunger by redistributing surplus food to charities that turn the goods into meals.

“We are really proud of our partnership with Moy Park, which has so far generated over 150,000 meals for people in need,” commented Rowen West-Henzell, commercial manager at FareShare.

“Having access to a regular supply of high-quality protein is fundamental for the local charities FareShare works with.

“It enables them to provide hot nutritious meals for people that may otherwise go without, provides essential protein to help build up strength and offers a versatile product that can be used in a wide variety of meals. To achieve all this, with product that would otherwise go to waste, shows what a positive impact surplus food can have if it is prioritised to feed people first.”
