FareShare Sussex is taking part in Christmas Challenge 2021 to raise £10,000 in one week. These funds will be used to provide 40,000 meals for people in need.
The organisation says: “It will make a real difference at this time of year when so many people can’t afford to eat. It will also prevent 12 tonnes of food from going to waste, saving the environment from carbon emissions.”
Donations to FareShare Sussex will be matched by their pledgers and Big Give champion, the Lake House Charitable Foundation, during the campaign.
Anna Montanari, fundraising & communications manager at FareShare Sussex, said: “This year we’re looking to raise a total of £10,000. In order to access the £10,000 we have in the matching pot, we need to raise £5,000 in online donations.
“We hope everyone will give generously this Christmas to help us reach our target and enable us to fight food poverty and tackle food waste.“
