The charity is planning to provide food hampers with everything needed to make a traditional Christmas meal - including turkey, fresh vegetables and a pudding. They will be distributed to 250 organisations around the country, which will cook the festive fare and provide a warm, safe place where it can be eaten in the company of others.
To ensure its Christmas Meal Appeal is a success, FareShare is looking for retailers or food manufacturers to help, either by donating food or providing logistical or financial support. The Grocer has already pledged its support for the appeal.
