Charity tackling food poverty and food waste in the United Kingdom


FareShare is a national UK charity supporting communities to relieve food poverty. FareShare is at the centre of two of the most urgent issues that face the UK: food poverty and food waste.

The charity addresses these issues in three ways:

- Providing quality food - surplus ‘fit for purpose’ product from the food and drink industry – to organisations working with disadvantaged people in the community

- Providing training and education around the essential life skills of safe food preparation and nutrition, and warehouse employability training through FareShare’s Eat Well Live Well programme

- Promoting the message that ‘No Good Food Should Be Wasted’

FareShare has been operating since 2004 as an independent charity and today has 17 locations around the UK. Established in 1994 as a project within the homelessness charity Crisis, FareShare aims to help vulnerable groups, whether they are homeless, elderly, children, or other groups in food poverty within our communities.
