The ration packs are enough to sustain ten soldiers for a 24 hour period and include items for breakfast, lunch and dinner, such as porridge, sausages, baked beans, pasta and rice. Each pack contains nutritionally balanced meals, providing 4,000 calories to sustain an active person over a 24-hour period.
Minister for Defence People and Veterans Tobias Ellwood said: “Ration packs help provide nutritionally balanced meals to our Armed Forces on operations around the world. But charity begins at home, and I’m pleased our partnership with FareShare will make sure no food goes to waste. FareShare does a fantastic job redistributing food across the country and I’m proud the military can support communities in this way.”
