Update on our social impact: Suplus food collections Day 1 - 2 NEN Hostel

Welcome to Life at NEN

You may know that we work closely with organisations that want to make a positive change in the local community, last week we spoke about #neighbourly and I briefly mentioned that I will bring you up to speed about #fareshare also who beleive that no good food should go to waste.


FareShare is the UK’s national network of charitable food redistributors, made up of 18 independent organisations. Together, we take good quality surplus food from right across the food industry and get it to nearly 9,500 frontline charities and community groups.

The food we redistribute is nutritious and good to eat. It reaches charities across the UK, including school breakfast clubs, older people’s lunch clubs, homeless shelters, and community cafes. Every week we provide enough food to create almost a million meals for vulnerable people.

They have provided us with an update of our social impact see below


As you can see we have out social impact numbers for both Neighorly and fareshare, we have received well over 13,5k meals, 0.5 tonnes of product and 20.5 tonnes co2 saved. This is brilliant news as we have helped to limit waste in the UK.


We would also like celebrate with you we have recently won funding from the National Lottery's community fund "yay" now we can secure future properties in the area so that we can continue our work in helping limit the effects of homelessness, the cost of living crisis and to give peace of mind to our hostel service users.
