FareShare has been a recipient of Sodexo’s Stop Hunger Foundation for over ten years.  Sodexo supports FareShare with financial, in-kind support and volunteering hours.  Sodexo volunteers support FareShare at their depots, with development plans and during their Tesco Neighbourhood Collection each year.

“With Sodexo’s help, we are now redistributing over 8,000 tonnes of food every year, which helps to feed thousands of people every week. As our most consistent funder, Sodexo’s vision and support have underpinned this sustainable growth, enabling us to plan and forecast more effectively.”

– Lindsay Boswell, FareShare CEO

Seeing things first hand and being part of the excellent service FareShare provides in the community to those not as fortunate as ourselves was quite humbling. I would definitely volunteer again.”
