Meade Potato Company were delighted to hear that the produce we have donated to the Crosscare community foodbank has gone towards making 70,000 meals for people in need in 2016. The potatoes, carrots and other fruit and vegetables that we give the Crosscare foobank every week are re-distributed to people who are in need of some support in meeting their weekly food supply.
Our produce donations to foodcloud, another leading community foodbank in Dublin, for the period from Oct-Dec 2016 helped to make 15,180 meals for people in need. Foodcloud successfully re-distributed 6.9 tonnes of surplus food and thereby saved 8.1 tonnes of CO2 emissions.
Our commitment to channelling surplus food to community foodbanks is a pillar of our sustainability plan, and one which we believe reaps high rewards.
