Cadent pledges to fund 40,000 meals for vulnerable children and families

Helping our community

Cadent, the gas network and major local employer, has pledged to fund 40,000 meals as it joins the amazing nationwide effort to stop vulnerable children and families going hungry.

Individuals and businesses up and down the country are rallying to a cause championed by Manchester-born footballer Marcus Rashford MBE.

Cadent, which manages the underground gas network in the England star’s home city, has confirmed a donation to the charity he supports, FareShare.

“We’re one big family here at Cadent. Looking out for and looking after people – especially those in vulnerable situations – is just what we do,” said Steve Fraser, chief executive. “We don’t want to see anyone go hungry and really feel this donation is the right thing to do.”

Cadent looks after four of the UK’s gas networks – North West England, the West Midlands, East and North London. It directly employs over 4,000 people and many thousands more via sub-contractors.

FareShare
FareShare is the UK’s largest food redistribution charity, redistributing surplus food from the food industry through a network of 11,000 frontline organisations across the UK. FareShare provides enough food to create almost a million meals for vulnerable people every week.
