One Stop donates 320,000 children meals

One Stop has partnered with FareShare to donate £80,000 to support the provision of meals to children during school winter holidays and February half term. 

The convenience retailer has also launched a Christmas activity book earlier this month in a bid to help supply 320,000 meals. 

The activity book will cost £2.50, the equivalent of delivering 10 meals to children, and will be available at all of One Stop’s 900 sites.

All funds are expected to go directly to FareShare to provide food to those in need and plans for future activity book charity launches are expected over Easter and Summer. 

“Our stores are based in the heart of community neighborhoods so we see firsthand how some people may need additional support,” One Stop head of sustainability and social responsibility Liz Fox said. 

“It’s key that we work with organisations like FareShare to help make a difference and influence change.” 

FareShare chief executive Lindsay Boswell added: “The holidays should be a time of fun and excitement yet, in the aftermath of the pandemic and with rising costs to contend with, many more families will struggle to put food on the table over the Christmas break. 

“We are very thankful to One Stop for their support, which will help us deliver 320,000 meals worth of food to our network of frontline charities supporting families this winter.”
