Fareshare_LondonFareShare London saves good food from going to waste and takes it to over 200 charities and community groups across the capital, who turn it into meals for Londoners in need of support. They include homeless hostels, lunch clubs for older people, domestic violence refuges and children’s breakfast and holiday clubs.


Volunteering:  Food heroes wanted.

Help us save good food from going to waste and get it to the people who need it most.

Volunteering is a tangible way to give something back to your community, gain experience and meet new people. We are always on the look out for new volunteers to join our friendly and busy team in Deptford so register your interest now with the form on the right.

New! Saturday volunteering 

You asked, we listened. Over the past year we have been inundated with requests from people wanting to volunteer for us at the weekend. Never wanting to turn away potential food heroes, we are delighted to now offer Saturday volunteering. As we expand to meet growing demand from local charities and community groups that feed vulnerable people, we need your help more than ever.

You can sign up for morning or afternoon shifts, on an ad hoc or regular basis. You will be part of a team that helps to sort food and prepare the warehouse for the busy week ahead.
