Foodshare Maidenhead is concerned to provide as nutritious a diet as we can to the people we support. Most of the charity’s small income is spent on purchasing fresh food, to supplement the package food kindly donated by the local public. Recently we have started to obtain supermarkets’ surplus food, with the ambition to both reduce food wastage and lessen food poverty. However, dealing with an increasing volume of fresh and chilled food presents a challenge.
Having a modular coldroom not only increases our storage capacity, but it makes the handling and management of these food stocks far easier than using conventional refrigerators, so we can be confident about food safety. It’s due to the generosity of MTCSS that a suitable coldroom became viable for the charity. Having this asset is a big step forward for Foodshare being able to extend its support and deal with the rising demand.
