Pickering Food Share is a non-profit eco- and community-centred organisation that collects food from local supermarkets and cafes that is at its best before date but still perfectly fine to eat, and redistributes it to local people. The PFS website is an important project aimed at spreading awareness about the initiative in the community. It extends the organisation’s presence from just the offline world into the digital online space, and opens up a wide range of opportunities. It’s significance is in its ability to help the organisation reach a wider audience of the communities in need, potential volunteers and new businesses, growing their network of partners, customers and supporters. It offers a more convenient way to spread the information about the initiative for the volunteers, and for people to share it with each other.
