Stonegate has announced that it is donating all its surplus non-alcoholic products in venues across its managed estate to local charities.
Crisps, snacks, nuts, juices and soft drinks, dated up to March 2021, are all available for donation, as well as any fruit and vegetables the pubs have in stock.
Charities will be selected by each pub’s general manager, but the company has suggested donating the products to help volunteers at vaccination centres if they are in need of inspiration.
“We’re delighted to be able to give away our short-dated products to a range of worthwhile causes," says Colin Hawkins, operations director for Stonegate Pub Company. "We wanted to give each GM the autonomy to choose where it goes, as they all have relationships with their local charities and their fingers on the pulse of their local communities, to know exactly to who and where the food and drink would make the most difference."
Stonegate's managed estate also continues to keep its customers entertained with weekly pub quizzes online, where both the company’s teams and customers take part.
