East Anglia

FareShare East Anglia started operating in the Summer 2017 from a warehouse in Ipswich, saving good food from going to waste and redistributing it to charities and community groups across the East of England.

Charities – Register your interest now

If your organisation or project supports vulnerable people in your community and you are either a charity, a not-for-profit organisation, a community group or a social enterprise providing a meal service, please register your interest by completing the form on the right here and we will be in touch.

We are initially looking for interested organisations within a 25 mile radius of Ipswich, more specifically the areas of:

  • Stowmarket
  • Felixstowe
  • Colchester
  • Sudbury
  • Clacton On Sea
  • Bury St Edmunds
  • Harwich

We are also looking for interested organisations in Cambridge and Norwich.

If you are outside this area, you are still welcome to register your interest and we will let you know as soon as we come to your area.

Our Community Food Membership Pack will provide you with more information on the FareShare service and the benefits of receiving food from FareShare East Anglia.

Volunteers wanted: Be a FareShare Food Hero!

We are also looking for people to help us get food to the people who need it most.

If you are interested in volunteering at the Regional Centre in Ipswich drop us a line at [email protected]. We’d love to hear from you. Visit our volunteer page for details of volunteer roles at FareShare or apply to volunteer at FareShare East Anglia now by completing our online application form.

This project is kindly supported by The Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation via The Global FoodBanking Network.
