We believe that no good food should go to waste. We redistribute surplus food to charities that turn it into meals.
We are doers. We are a community. We change lives.
Hundreds of thousands of tonnes of good food is wasted by the UK food industry every year. At the same time, millions of people are struggling to afford to eat. Our work addresses these two issues by redistributing food industry surplus, which would otherwise go to waste, to the people who need it most.
8.4 million people in the UK are struggling to afford to eat. This is equivalent to the entire population of London
4.7 million of these people live in severely food insecure homes. This means that their food intake is greatly reduced and children regularly experience physical sensations of hunger.
FareShare is the UK’s leading charity fighting hunger and food waste. We redistribute good quality surplus food that would otherwise go to waste to frontline charities and community groups that support vulnerable people. By ensuring good food is not wasted, we turn an environmental problem into a social solution.
