first_img Feb 23rd 2018, 1:05 PM Some will inevitably be wasted, which we hate. We are working as hard as we can to make this number as small as possible. One route we are working on is donations to food charities.— KFC UK & Ireland (@KFC_UKI) February 21, 2018 A women reads a closed sign in a KFC restuarant window in London.

When asked on Twitter whether thousands of tonnes of chicken would end up in landfill, the company said it is inevitable that some chicken will be wasted but it is trying to donate the food to charities. However homelesness charity Centrepoint was one of many who said it would not be able to accept the chicken as it is not equipped to handle it.“KFC’s heart is obviously in the right place, but most charities do not have the logistical capability to safely transport, store and prepare such a large quantity of fresh food,” Paul Noblet, its head of public affairs, told The Guardian.The sentiments were echoed by several other charities who said they can only accept long-life food items such as tins and packets.Mary McGrath, the chief executive of FoodCycle, urged KFC not dump any waste chicken.“They should be giving it further up the food waste chain,” she explained.
