Since partnering with FareShare in March 2020, KIND Snacks has provided the equivalent of 500,000 meals, becoming one of FareShare’s largest ambient suppliers of the past year.
“During an extremely challenging year, KIND Snacks has been working closely with FareShare to help fight hunger & tackle food waste in the UK. Our surplus products have been gratefully received by over 3,000 frontline charities and local community groups across the country, from food banks and community centres to soup kitchens, care homes, medical facilities & many more. This month we’re delighted to have hit our 500,000-meal milestone with FareShare, and we look forward to continue supporting this amazing charity throughout the pandemic and beyond!”
