Corporate Social Responsibility Project
Coregeo & Pink Lady®
Coregeo and Pink Lady® donated 50,000 apples (10.5 tonnes) to FareShare between July and September 2020 to help combat holiday hunger.
The donation to the UK’s largest charity fighting hunger and food waste came in response to FareShare’s Summer Appeal during the coronavirus pandemic.
FareShare distributed the Pink Lady® apples to 364 frontline charities and community groups across the UK including school breakfast and after school clubs, hostels for the homeless, foodbanks and community centres in deprived areas.
The charity estimated that organisations supporting children and families needed at least 40% more food over the summer holiday compared to pre-COVID-19 levels.
