Tomato Stall boost for Isle of Wight Foodbank

Tuesday, September 24, 2013 - 11:43

LUXURY stock from an Isle of Wight company has been donated to boost the Foodbank’s efforts to help those in need.
The Arreton-based Tomato Stall has donated surplus stock that has been discontinued due to changes in packaging or updated recipes.
Hannah King, manager of the Somerton-based Isle of Wight Foodbank, said: "We are delighted to be able to offer something extra to those coming to the Foodbank.
"The products are perfectly edible and have months left on their shelf life, so it makes perfect sense to see them put to good use."
A Tomato Stall spokesman said: "As a sustainable business, The Tomato Stall wanted to find a way to ensure this produce was not wasted and contacted the Foodbank to see if non-essential items would be considered.
"This week the Foodbank received a donation of 'luxury’ items from the Tomato Stall including Isle of Wight chilli ketchup and salsa."
