Clifton NG11 Foodbank and volunteers

At Hardstaff Barriers, we hate food waste as much as we hate industrial waste.

That’s why we donated a range of hot drinks, fast-approaching their best before dates, to our local foodbank.

We donated the boxes of hot chocolate and soup from our Nottinghamshire office, which staff had been unable to consume during lockdown, to Clifton NG11 Foodbank.

As a leading UK manufacturer and supplier of precast concrete road safety and security barriers, we made the donation as part of our commitment to sustainability and our ongoing support for local communities.

Research carried out by the University of Sheffield’s Institute for Sustainable Food showed that reducing food loss and waste (FLW) could lead to significant improvements for food security and environmental sustainability.

Clifton NG11 Foodbank, supported by The Trussell Trust, provides three days of nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to the foodbank in crisis. 

It is part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK, based on the firm belief that nobody should have to face going hungry. 

Wendy White, NG11 Foodbank Manager, said: “Such generous and thoughtful contributions feed and treat vulnerable people in our area.

“All the volunteers at our foodbank can vouch for the pleasure and relief these donations bring to local people in need, especially in these exceedingly difficult times. Together, we do make a difference.”
