Sourdough pizza pioneer, Franco Manca, in collaboration with Uber Eats, has announced that for one week it will be donating £1 to FareShare for every Franco Manca order on Uber Eats. The initiative will run for from Tuesday 21st January until Monday 27th January 2020.
“This charity partnership is incredibly important to us at Franco Manca. We're proud to be partnering with UberEats and FareShare to extend our support to local communities and continue to help those in need. Throughout 2020, we will be supporting local foodbanks, soup kitchens and shelters with donations of our fresh sourdough bread. Please contact us at www.francomanca.co.uk/donations if you know a local organisation that could do with our help”
Operations Director at Franco Manca, Javed Akhtar
The move follows Franco Manca’s recent pledge to turn surplus dough into delicious fresh sourdough bread for those most in need through 2020, with loaves being donated to local soup kitchens, charities and shelters across the UK. Most recently, they pledged to double their 2018 target and donate 40,000 free pizzas to those most in need, a tradition upheld over the past few years.
FareShare CEO Lindsay Boswell, said:
“This generous donation will help us to get even more good quality, fresh surplus food onto the plates of vulnerable people – we’re delighted Franco Manca and Uber Eats have chosen to support us.”
General Manager of Uber Eats in the UK, Toussaint Wattinne, said:
“Whilst many of us are able to enjoy a takeaway treat, it’s important to remember those who aren’t as fortunate. At Uber Eats we’re proud that every delicious Franco Manca delivery between 21st - 27th January 2020 will support the wonderful work carried out by Fareshare, helping relieve food poverty.”
