Surplus food from Morrissons stores will help to feed UK people at risk of hunger.

The supermarket has announced a partnership with charity FoodCycle that will see back-of-store surplus food used to make community lunches.

FoodCycle projects have served over 112,000 meals from over 130,000kg of reclaimed surplus food in the last five years.

Morrissons group corporate services director Martyn Jones said: “Our colleagues work hard to minimise waste every day and we know that our customers really care about this too.

“Our partnership with FoodCycle will allow us to find a good home for the small amount of unsold or used food in stores and support FoodCycle’s great work in the community.”
