Could your charity or community group use surplus food to support your beneficiaries?

We save good food destined for waste and send it to over 2,489 charities and community groups who transform it into nutritious meals for vulnerable people, from homeless hostels and day centres for older people to women’s refuges and children’s breakfast clubs.

Could your organisation also put good food to good use?

From marvellous meat, dairy and fish to flavoursome fruit and veg, the food we save is good quality and in date and could help you provide a varied menu for your beneficiaries. It can save you money too – FareShare food is worth on average £7,900 to each charity member* – leaving you with more to put back into your other support services.


There are two ways you can get food from FareShare:

  • Become a FareShare member to receive regular orders of good food
    Receive regular and reliable orders of fresh food and store cupboard staples from one of our twenty Regional Centres. Find out if you have a FareShare Regional Centre near you on our Where to find us page.
  • Collect free food from a local store
    FareShare FoodCloud matches charities and community groups with local stores who have surplus food available  for collection at the end of the day and is available across the UK. Find out how it works.

If you are interested in receiving food from FareShare fill in the form on the right and we will get right back to you.
