Three of us from Open Door visited Fareshare in Edinburgh last week to meet the Cyrenian staff and volunteers who work hard to process tons of good food destined otherwise for the dump. We were able to have a good conversation about our Open Door and the food we find useful, in quantities that are manageable. They told us that they partner with over 100 projects, delivering about 7,000 meals annually so it’s a major challenge for them to keep us all in mind and get it right for everyone all the time. It’s a big operation! It was a very useful, enjoyable visit and we are increasingly appreciative of our link with the Cyrenians and very glad to be saving waste.
