What members say

“Most of the food that people provide for us is long life tins, whereas FareShare is brilliant for fresh meat, fresh dairy and fresh fruit and veg, and the special items that make people feel good. It works perfectly.” Bruntsfield Evangelical

“(FareShare) has benefitted us as we are now able to give food to our women and children. When they flee, they flee with just what they have got on.” Shakti’s Women’s Aid, working with women fleeing domestic violence
