National Stop Food Waste Week runs from 12th to 19th June this year. All year round, however, our team of food rescue volunteers is integral to the collection & redistribution of food from our retail partners. In partnership with Food Cloud, we have achieved 516 collections and saved 25,485kg of good food from going to waste!
One of our food rescue volunteers, Mary Fitzgerald speaks about the benefits of the food rescue network in Galway:
The food, including fresh fruit, vegetables and chilled products, is redistributed through our services and offers food and cost savings benefits. One of our service managers speaks of its value to the people we work with:
COPE Galway’s food rescue initiatives ensure no food goes to waste from retail partners with surplus food in the community.
