How does it work?
FareShare provides the people power that ensures that charities are safely matched with a suitable store and that they are supported to get the most out of their store collections. FareShare FoodCloud really is a simple solution – the technology behind it means that charities only need to be able to receive text messages from their local Tesco store.
What areas of the UK does FareShare FoodCloud cover?
FareShare FoodCloud is being rolled out right across the UK.
Can my organisation receive food?
In order to receive food, your organisation needs to be equipped to receive, store, prepare and serve food safely. Charities and community groups will be visited by someone from the team at FareShare to make sure that they use the food in accordance with relevant safety and handling guidelines.
