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 warehouse employability training through FareShare’s Skills & Training programme
- Promoting the message that ‘No Good Food Should Be Wasted’
FareShare has been operating since 2004 as an independent charity and today has 21 regional centres across 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.
