Providing food to people living in food poverty:
Through its Food Access Programme, FareShare is providing food to some of the most vulnerable people in our society.
The clients that use the services of FareShare’s community Members all suffer from food poverty. Food poverty is suffered by people with low or no income with poor access to affordable nutritious food and who lack the knowledge, skills or equipment to ensure food is safe and prepared properly.

The FareShare Community Food Network
FareShare is a nationwide network of community based partnerships with regional organisations and charities.
FareShare Delivery Partners: FareShare is run by partner organisations that deliver the FareShare services to their local Community Members. Click here for the contact details of your local FareShare franchise.
If you’re part of an organisation that would like to work with FareShare to develop a franchise in your area please send an email to email@example.com to register your interest.
Community Members: The Community Food Network includes over 900 local charities and organisations – our Community Members – which receive FareShare food and other support.
This food encourages disadvantaged people into an environment (such as hostels, day centers, night shelters, breakfast clubs, women’s refuges, after school clubs etc.) where they can receive appropriate support. It also enable these organisations to reinvest funds into other services such as housing advice, training and medical support, which in turn help people rebuild their lives. Please click here for a summary of FareShare’s Impact Survey to find out more about our Community Members and how they benefit from the FareShare service. For the full report, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
