Sourdough pizza pioneer, Franco Manca, in collaboration with Uber Eats, has announced that for every Franco Manca order delivered by Uber Eats it will be donating £1 to charity FareShare, who redistribute food to charities and food banks. The initiative will run until Monday 27th January 2020.

The move follows Franco Manca’s recent pledge to turn surplus dough into delicious fresh sourdough bread for those most in need through 2020, with loaves being donated to local soup kitchens, charities and shelters across the UK. Throughout the year, food banks, charities and shelters are encouraged to request donations from their local Franco Manca. Most recently, they pledged to double their 2018 target and donate 40,000 free pizzas to those most in need, a tradition upheld over the past few years.

Operations Director at Franco Manca, Javed Akhtar, said: "This charity partnership is incredibly important to us at Franco Manca. We're proud to be partnering with Uber Eats and FareShare to extend our support to local communities and continue to help those in need. Throughout 2020, we will be supporting local foodbanks, soup kitchens and shelters with donations of our fresh sourdough bread.
