BWG Foods’ support of FoodCloud during Covid-19 crisis has been integral to keeping surplus products moving around the country and reaching those in most need.
BWG Foods has been donating to FoodCloud since 2015 and in this time FoodCloud has redistributed more than 190 tonnes of surplus food from four BWG sites: BWG Foods Cork – Value Centre, BWG Foods Galway – Value Centre, BWG Foods Dublin – Value Centre and BWG Foods National Distribution Centre, as well as from the annual BWG Foods’ Trade Show.
All of these donations have benefited more than 340 Charities and Community Groups around the country.
Since March 2020, BWG Foods has donated over 13.5 tonnes of surplus food, the equivalent of 32,211 meals, in response to the Covid-19 global pandemic. Our support of FoodCloud has been extended during these unprecedented times through both additional storage support – offering additional storage in Blarney Cork – and inter-depot transport, which has been crucial to the whole operation.
The storage space gives FoodCloud extra capacity to hold the additional volumes of donations they have been receiving since the beginning of the crisis while the inter-depot transfers support them in moving food between their three Hubs. The supports helps ensure FoodCloud are in a position to continue getting surplus food to vulnerable people all around the country; both integral parts of keeping the show on the road!
These phenomenal donations and additional support ensures FoodCloud are able to continue getting good food to the 500+ Charities and Community Groups they support.
