Rush Group divert close to 32 tonnes of potatoes over the summer

Rush Group Potatoes

20 September 2019

We want to say a big thank you to new partner Rush Group, who since coming on board as a partner in May 2019, have diverted close to 32 tonnes of potatoes over the summer. That’s enough potatoes to help create 76,000 meals. 

“As a concept, The Rush Group have been eager not to see one kilo of produce go to waste. Fareshare have provided us with a reliable and trustworthy outlet and we are delighted to see this produce find its way onto the plates of those who need it most.”

Guy Burgoyne, Director, Rush Group Ltd

The result of this new partnership has meant that charities and community groups across the UK from Edinburgh to Brighton have been receiving fresh potatoes that have gone out to over 1,400 charities, including children’s and family centres, community centres and soup kitchens.

Thank you Rush group for your surplus potatoes!
