On the finish of day-after-day we donate all our edible meals to volunteers who redistribute it to the area people by way of OLIO, the meals sharing revolution platform. It’s a really pioneering partnership and every month greater than 5000 parts of perishable meals now feed bellies in communities close to all of our shops.  The rescued meals helps many individuals affected by starvation and meals poverty.

Struggling single dad and mom, the aged, the disabled, the hungry & weak; have all benefited from the excess meals. I imagine it is necessary to do what we will for others in want, and as a bonus we’re serving to the planet too.”
