A FOOD charity is helping unemployed people get into the food industry.

FareShare Sussex will launch its six week “job readiness programme” next Monday, offering work experience, training and career contacts to those in need of help.

The charity redistributes unused food across the county, including surplus from supermarkets and Higgidy Pies in Shoreham.

Anyone interested in the course can call 01273 671111 or email laura@faresharesussex.org.uk.

All applicants must be over the age of 18 and not in full-time education, employment, or training.
