“FareShare is the UK’s biggest charity fighting hunger and tackling food waste. We take good-to-eat food surplus food, which is unsold or unwanted by the food industry, and redistribute it, through a network of 9,500 charities and community organisations.
FareShare operates nationwide through a network of 31 warehouses across the UK. An army of volunteers then help sort, store and deliver this food locally, to charities and community groups, who are signed up to receive it.
The charities and community groups that receive food from FareShare turn it into meals and food parcels for vulnerable families and individuals. Nearly all (90%) of these organisations offer vital services and support (wrap-around-care) for people who are often vulnerable and struggling with issues including unemployment and low income, debt, homelessness, loneliness, family break up, and dependency. Our food is helping these charities tackle the root causes of poverty, not just the symptoms.
We are really looking forward to meeting with many different organisations across the frozen food industry, including our existing food partners. The conference will be a great opportunity to show just how easy it is for the frozen food industry to support FareShare’s mission of preventing food waste and getting it to those who need it most.
We will be welcoming people to our stand to explain more about the FareShare mission and how we can work closely with the frozen food industry to meet sustainability goals through surplus food redistribution.”
