Franco Manca and Uber Eats to donate £1 from each order to Fareshare

 

Until Monday, January 27th, sourdough pizza pioneer Franco Manca has announced that it will donate £1 to FareShare for every order delivered through Uber Eats.

It’s part of a big charity push from the pizza business, whose Bristol branch opened on Clare Street in late 2017. The news that they will be donating £1 per Uber Eats order to charity FareShare – who redistribute food to charities and food banks – follows their recent pledge to turn surplus dough into sourdough bread for those most in need throughout 2020. This bread will be donated to local charities, soup kitchens and shelters across the UK – organisations who are encouraged to request donations from Franco Manca if needed. Most recently, they pledged to double their 2018 target, and donate 40,000 free pizzas to those most in need – a tradition they have upheld over the last few years.

Operations Director at Franco Manca, Javed Akhtar, said: “This charity partnership is incredibly important to us at Franco Manca. We’re proud to be partnering with Uber Eats and FareShare to extend our support to local communities and continue to help those in need. Throughout 2020, we will be supporting local foodbanks, soup kitchens and shelters with donations of our fresh sourdough bread. Please contact us at www.francomanca.co.uk/donations if you know a local organisation that could do with our help“

FareShare CEO, Lindsay Boswell, said: “This generous donation will help us to get even more good quality, fresh surplus food onto the plates of vulnerable people –we’re delighted Franco Manca and Uber Eats have chosen to support us.”

General Manager of Uber Eats in the UK, Toussaint Wattinne, said: “Whilst many of us are able to enjoy a takeaway treat, it’s important to remember those who aren’t as fortunate. At Uber Eats we’re proud that every delicious Franco Manca delivery between 21st – 27th January 2020 will support the wonderful work carried out by Fareshare, helping relieve food poverty.”
