Tesco has recently teamed up with Jamie Oliver and our partner Fareshare, to launch a new cooking school to teach community organisations how to prepare surplus food,

From July to December 2018, JDM Food Group provided 51.5 tonnes of surplus food to FareShare. That’s enough to contribute towards 122,621 meals for people in need.
