FareShare Yorkshire supports over 164 charities and community groups in Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley, Wakefield, Huddersfield, Doncaster, Leeds and Bradford and now Derbyshire and Lincolnshire. FareShare Yorkshire has been operating for 13 years from its Barnsley base and now has a spoke depot in Rotherham with more planned in the coming year.
They provide support, through the food they deliver, to community groups that feed vulnerable people in Yorkshire communities. Volunteer opportunities and warehouse and forklift truck training also support individuals back into employment. To find out more about these opportunities contact Gareth Batty.
