What we do

We save food and we change lives.

We save good food destined for waste and send it to charities and community groups who transform it into nutritious meals for vulnerable people. The food we redistribute is fresh, quality and in date surplus from the food industry and the charities we work with are right across the UK. Find out how the FareShare model works in our infographic.

More than meals

Last year we redistributed enough food for 13.2 million meals. But it’s about more than meals. The organisations we supply food to – from breakfast clubs for disadvantaged children, to homeless hostels, community cafes and domestic violence refuges – are places that provide life changing support, as well as lunch and dinner.

By making sure good food is not wasted, we turn an environmental problem into a social solution.


A global movement

As a member of both The Global FoodBanking Network and European Federation of Food Banks,  we are part of a global movement working to alleviate hunger by capturing surplus food and delivering it to the people who need it.
