Food Heroes Wanted
FareShare London is part of the award winning national FareShare Network that saves in date, good food from going to waste and redistributes it to over 200 charities and community groups across the Capital, who turn it into nutritious meals for Londoners in need of support each week. These include homeless hostels, lunch clubs for older people, domestic violence refuges and children’s breakfast clubs.
You will get involved at the heart of FareShare’s food re-distribution operation, helping to sort tonnes of food and get the warehouse ready for the busy week ahead giving you the opportunity to help us improve the daily lives of over 20,000 people facing food poverty each week.
The warehouse is a fun, physical environment suited to people of all ages. So if you like to squat-thrust with squash, crunch abs with apples or tone your glutes with grapefruits, we’d be thrilled to see you!
Please arrive for 12 noon. We expect this mission to last up to 3 hours.
There are some massive doors at the Omnibus theatre - where the Wandsworth group have been before to do a good old spring clean - and they need a good lick of paint. We're the team for the job, so let's get our brushes out.
We meet at the Battersea Arts Centre as usual - Monday at 6:30 - then after a quick warm up and welcome we'll run up to the theatre in Clapham. After we've done our task, we'll hop over to the common for a fitness session that'll leave you sweaty but happy.
We'll cover about 5 k in total, but don't worry, we have backmarkers so no one is ever left behind.
See you on Monday for some painting and planking!
Leanna is a now a fully fledged GoodGym runner. They've just run to do good for the first time. They are out there making amazing things happen and getting fit at the same time.
We have a great charity to help out this week - the Work and Play Scrapstore reuses materials for environmental, community and artistic benefit. They supply donated clean and re-useable surplus/waste materials otherwise destined for incineration, landfill or long-term storage to a wide range of groups such as schools, charities, community groups, arts organisations, students and families. But they need our help!
Join us for a slightly longer run down to Tooting where we'll be painting, carrying, and tidying in groups of 3-5 to do at a time. There will be the option of taking public transport for at least part of the way back, so bring your oyster cards and we'll see which team gets back to the doors of the BAC first! This is a great session that will leave you feeling fit and sweaty!
As always, there are backmarkers so no one gets left behind. If you're concerned about the run then drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
