Food waste charity Fareshare has told the BBC it has seen a drop of around 200 tonnes in supermarket surplus donations every month this summer.

The charity said the reduction had come at the same time as demand for the services they support surged.

The BBC understands Fareshare is writing to major supermarkets, asking for an increase in contributions.

Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Asda and Waitrose all told the BBC their donations were steady.

Sainsbury's and Asda said they were also committed to reducing food waste with Sainsburys acknowledging this could affect donations.

?  This sounds like another consequence of an economy in recession.  My guess is that a lot less fresh or prepared food is being sold as opposed to dry, bulk foods like beans, rice, and the like.
