Vegi Rice producer Fullgreen donated several crates of their best-selling Cauli & Broccoli Vegi Rice to FareShare this summer, supporting our ActiveAte campaign to get nutritious meals to 50,000 children over the summer holidays.
“We are very thankful for Fullgreen’s donation of Vegi rich which was gratefully received by the charities and community groups we support. Fresh fruit and veg is incredibly valuable to our charities, particularly those supporting children and families as it gives them access to nutritious and well-balanced meals.”
Shula Granville, Commercial Manager at FareShare
Summer should be a time of fun and excitement for children, but for many this is not the case. For families whose children are eligible for free school meals, once school is out, this safety net is removed. Additional costs for activities and childcare can be a strain on families who are already working extra hard to provide the meals their kids would normally get at school.
The Vegi Rice went down a treat and holiday clubs and activity groups across the UK, where it was used to create tasty side dishes.
