FareShare East Anglia
Opening this summer, FareShare East Anglia will be our twenty-first UK Regional Centre and will be ready to handle in-date quality surplus food. We are tremendously excited about the launch of this new operation, which will support charities and community groups across Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire – such as homeless hostels, breakfast clubs, lunch clubs for older people and domestic violence refuges.
Our vision is to run FareShare East Anglia in partnership with the community it serves. To help make sure this Regional Centre is a success we are calling out for support and input from across the East Anglia community.
Charities – Register your interest now
If your organisation or project supports vulnerable people in your community and you are either a charity, a not-for-profit organisation, a community group or a social enterprise providing a meal service, please register your interest by completing the form on the right and we will be in touch.
We are initially looking for interested organisations within a 25 mile radius of Ipswich, more specifically the areas of:
Clacton On Sea
Bury St Edmunds
We are also looking for interested organisations in Cambridge and Norwich.
If you are outside this area, you are still welcome to register your interest and we will let you know as soon as we come to your area.
Our Community Food Membership Pack will provide you with more information on the FareShare service and the benefits of receiving food from FareShare East Anglia.

We are also looking for people to help us get food to the people who need it most.
