Matthew Walker Christmas Puds

Matthew Walker, the world’s oldest Christmas pudding maker have provided an enormous haul of Christmas puddings to FareShare – bringing the total amount of puds redistributed across the network in 2018 to 2880 kilos!

Thanks to the support of Matthew Walker who are part of 2 Sisters Food Group – FareShare have been able to provide puds for hundreds of dinners held over the festive period through their network of charity partners.

The puds, which are provided annually, will go out to homeless shelters, lunch clubs and community centres among other charities. Not only do the puddings play a part in providing festive meals but they also help build a support network for those who may otherwise have been alone during this Christmas period.

Thank you Matthew Walker for helping us spread some Christmas cheer with your Christmas Puddings!
