Community Food Share

PCA Daily News

Following a successful trial during the Christmas period PCCA are continuing with the community food share initiative.

Whilst the primary objective is to reduce food waste it is also a way to give a helping hand to anyone that needs a little help in these challenging times.

Food waste is a big issue in the UK. The average household throws away £470 worth of food every year.  Food Share is a simple response. You can drop off good but unwanted food, and anyone can help themselves to what is available.

The food share scheme is for retail businesses, restaurants and individual people to share perfectly good food that is edible and would otherwise go to waste. 
The operators of the scheme – PCCA – will make sure that the food is handled in a safe environment for food sharing. PCCA cannot take responsibility for the condition of the contents of this food. Everyone who donates food is responsible for the safety of this food and will follow the guidelines provided. 

By taking food from the Food Share initiative you commit to making your own judgement as to whether or not the contents you take are suitable for your own use. 

Food Share is available during PCCA opening hours (Mon – Sat 9-1).  If the weather is fine food will be placed on trestle tables outside otherwise you may enter the Scout Hut wearing a face mask and observing Covid safe practices. 

The Little Lunchbox Cafe – 14 High St, Pewsey  run a very similar scheme.
