FareShare London saves good food from going to waste and takes it to 224 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.
Volunteer with FareShare London this summer to fight holiday hunger
With no access to free school meals during the summer holidays, many low-income families struggle to make their food budgets stretch over the six-week break. To help ease the load on families, we’ve teamed up with charities and community groups to provide food and fun to children in the capital over the summer break.
Could you volunteer to help us get good food to them this summer? As well as making a difference to your community, you’ll have a chance to gain skills, meet like-minded people and do something a little bit different this summer.
To get involved, complete our online volunteer application form by 19 July and will be in touch with you. Inductions will take place on 20 July and 26 July.
