Harwich-based Surya Foods is getting behind the Fareshare food poverty charity’s holiday hunger campaign.

Surya Foods is donating large quantities of Laila Basmati rice to a national project which aims to help feed hungry children during the school holidays.

The national ‘Holiday Hunger’ project by food waste redistribution charity Fareshare follows a Government report which revealed up to 3 million children are at risk of going hungry during the school holidays.

Surya Foods launched a partnership with Fareshare in 2015, with the latest donation further cementing the world food company’s

continued commitment to support the charity’s invaluable work.
