FareShare

Fareshare_Greater_ManchesterFareShare Greater Manchester was launched in October 2008 to support communities to combat food poverty and food waste in and around Manchester. The operation is run by EMERGE 3Rs.

The team redistribute food to over 160 charities and community groups and new organisations are welcome all the time. Our community food members provide vitally needed meals, food parcels and snacks to hundreds of disadvantaged people every day. They work with a huge variety of people experiencing hardship from people who are homeless or unemployed, people dealing with substance abuse, refugees and asylum-seekers at drop-ins, Surestart centres, and breakfast and after-school clubs for children and young adults.
