Be a FareShare food hero

Volunteers are the lifeblood of FareShare. They carry out the vital activities that make FareShare happen and without them we would not be able to get good food to those who need it most. We think they are true food heroes.

We are always on the look out for people to join our friendly and busy teams across the UK. Volunteering with FareShare is a tangible way to give something back to your community, as well as gain experience and meet new people.

What do volunteers do?

  • Get stuck in: Sort food at one of our lively Regional Centres. From pears to pasta to plaice, it’s all good food we’ve saved from going to waste.
  • Get on the road: Take food to charities giving meals and support to some of the UK’s most vulnerable people.
  • Gain skills: Get firsthand experience of the charity sector and food industry while giving back to your community.

What commitment do I need to make?

  • You will need to commit to at least one shift per fortnight.
  • All volunteers need to be able to follow procedures, especially relating to food hygiene.
  • Commitment to equal opportunities and adherence to organisational policies of FareShare.

Where can I volunteer?

We operate in 20 locations across the UK. Find out if there is a Regional Centre near you and get in touch with them to hear more about volunteering there.
