Paul Pomroy, Chief Executive Officer at McDonald’s UK & Ireland said: “As a business we are committed to supporting and serving the communities in which we operate. In these challenging times, we know it’s more important than ever to support those most in need.
“When we temporarily closed our restaurants in March, our people, franchisees and suppliers rallied to provide surplus food and support to food banks and charities.
“We were pleased that we were able to donate surplus food through FareShare and other organisations earlier this year, and we admire the fantastic work that FareShare continues to do to support families facing very tough situations.
“I am pleased to support the distribution of one million meals to the families most in need this Autumn, and I wish to thank and congratulate FareShare for everything they’re doing.”
