Hi,

See http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cumbria-40836851

"A new charity to help tackle food poverty in Cumbria is being set up as part of a deal to recycle waste from the Sellafield nuclear site.

Preston-based Recycling Lives has won a 150,000 Pound contract to process waste metal from the Sellafield site, which is being decommissioned.

The deal will see several centres set up to distribute surplus food that would otherwise be sent to landfill.

They will be operated on behalf of the national food charity Fareshare.


'Social value'

Martin Chown, Sellafield Ltd's supply chain director, said: "We want to ensure our local communities derive maximum economic benefit from the money we spend at Sellafield.

"We do this by insisting that companies that win work with us invest to support local growth."


It's good to see more Firms helping the poor.


Regards, Mick. D.
