CHRISTMAS has left a zero-waste stall in Herefordshire inundated with food.

The Zero waste stall, in Gloucester Road, Ross-on-Wye, get food that is usable but is near or at its best before date from supermarkets in Herefordshire such as Aldi, Co-op, Sainsbury's, One Stop and Morrisons, Applegreen and the Community Garden.

They have potatoes, apples, tomatoes, bread, yogurts, mini muffins and passata.

Volunteer Dene Godfrey said: "We have never had so much on the stall, and it all needs to be eaten."

Organisers are asking people to take as much as they can use and to tell friends and neighbours about the stall so the food can be used instead of wasted.

"It seems that quite a few people think that this stall is exclusively for people on benefits or low incomes but, whilst they are the ones who would ideally benefit most, the main point of the stall is to reduce waste, no matter how wealthy you are," said Mr Godfrey.

"It is for everyone who hates food going to waste."

Caz Holbrook said he had visited the stall this morning where he found a big queue.

"They have lots of lovely vegetables," he said.

"I shared some with my neighbour."

All food is free, but you can donate to charity if you wish to.

They are open today (December 3), New Year's Eve and New Year's Day from 10.30am to 11.15am.
