Fare Share of Food

11/05/2010 at 9:33 am | Posted in Recycling | Leave a comment

I am delighted to see the vans of the FareShare Community Food Network coming out of their base on Clifton Road, Balsall Heath.

Wasted food is wasted resources. Food waste encourages the rat population. It rots in landfill sites, producing the greenhouse gas methane. Burning it produces carbon dioxide, another greenhouse gas.

At the same time, many people cannot afford adequate food, even in Britain. FareShare collects food that is perfectly edible from companies who cannot sell it and passes to organisations working with disadvantaged people who need it. They also train and employ local people. We all win!
