INTO Giving is supporting the provision of 100,000 meals and employment training

INTO Giving is providing 100,000 meals to homeless charities, women’s refuges and community foodbanks, and supporting employment training with a three-year grant totalling £75,000

 

NO ONE SHOULD LIVE IN HUNGER

For homeless people and those living in temporary accommodation, lack of food is a serious and daily problem, affecting women and men, children and families alike.

At the same time, tonnes of food is lost to waste and sent to landfills. In turn this produces greenhouse gas admission, which harm our environment.

 

HOW WE’RE HELPING

INTO Giving is supporting the crucial day-to-day costs of FareShare Sussex , including food collection, storage and distribution to homeless projects, community foodbanks and women’s refuges. In total, FareShare Sussex provides food to more than 125 community and charity organisations.

FareShare Sussex is reliant on local volunteers who work with a small staff team to collect and distribute food. A portion of INTO Giving’s donation supports volunteering costs.

 

In the second and third year of our partnership, INTO Giving will also support the delivery of a training and education programme for people who use community foodbanks, to help them move away from food poverty and into further education or employment.

Through cutting food waste, we are helping reduce greenhouse gasses emissions and helping rescue our environment.

INTO Giving’s grant is being matched pound-for-pound by a three-year £75,000 grant from the Colin Family Foundation.
