Spirit of Blaby
Partners in Blaby were challenged to come up with ideas to reduce the amount of food waste that goes to landfill, in particular the food that is out of date.
Partners Jane Stevenson and Christine Kiraly suggested the food could be used by the horses at Spirit at Play, a local horse organisation that works with all ages to develope and improve skills by positive interaction with the healing nature of horses.
SM Sian Ball and Jane visited Spirit at Play and were amazed with the work they do.
Branch Manager Elle Martin said: “Once we had approval, food donations started at the beginning of January.
Donations are such a great idea – why throw it in the bin when it can be used elsewhere! We hope to set up further donations to other causes this year”.
