FareShare is the UK’s biggest charity fighting hunger and food waste. We take surplus good-to-eat food, which is unsold or unwanted by the food industry, sort it in one of our 30 regional warehouses, and deliver it onto a network of more than 10,500 charities and charity groups.
These organisations then turn this nutritious food into meals for vulnerable families and individuals, many of whom are at risk of hunger, and struggling with unemployment, low income, debt, homelessness, family break up, dependency or other issues.
Our work with the food industry
For over 25 years FareShare has been working with the food industry to identify quality, surplus food that can be redistributed to charities. We work with more than 500 companies across the supply chain – from farmers to manufacturers, wholesalers to retailers, and big brands to small brands. We have authorisation to redistribute own label packaged goods from major retailers and brands.
Food safety is key to everything we do, and we operate to exactly the same standards as the food industry. Our food management systems ensure full compliance and traceability and our warehouses are independently audited every year.
