FareShare saves good food destined for waste and sends it to charities and community groups who transform it into nutritious meals for vulnerable people. The food they redistribute is fresh, quality and in date surplus from the food industry and the charities they work with can be found across the UK.

There are two ways you can get food from FareShare:

  • Become a FareShare member to receive regular orders of good food from one of twenty Regional Centres
  • FareShare Go matches charities and community groups with local stores who have surplus food available for collection at the end of the day and is available across the UK.

Premium information is available exclusively to SCVO members and supporters
