Voices from FareShare Kent…

FareShare Kent, YMCA pre-school


“We use the food for snacks for the children, as well as ingredients for baking. Yesterday we got lots of bananas so the children made banana bread”

 Vanessa at YMCA Tovil Pre-School Maidstone

FareShare Kent, Pilgrim's Hospice


“Food plays a part in making our patients and their loved ones feel safe. Sometimes you don’t have much left but food to look forward to at this stage and for their families, often the last thing they want to think about is cooking for themselves.”
Wendy at Pilgrims Hospice
