London

FareShare London saves good food from going to waste and takes it to 224 charities and community groups across the capital, who turn it into meals for Londoners in need of support. They include homeless hostels, lunch clubs for older people, domestic violence refuges and children’s breakfast and holiday clubs.

Volunteer with FareShare London

The FareShare London warehouse in Deptford is seeking dozens of volunteers who can spare time during the week to help ensure that good, surplus food gets to the people who need it most.

Volunteers can get involved driving our vans to deliver food supplies to amazing frontline organisations across London. You can also sign up to volunteer in the warehouse for morning or afternoon shifts, on a regular basis, and will be part of a team that helps to sort and deliver food, input food information on the computer system and even chat with the charities about their food needs for the coming week.

To get involved contact volunteerlondon@fareshare.org.uk.


Voices from FareShare London…

FareShare London


“I am consistently amazed at the charities we deliver to; how hard they work to make sure that there’s good food for either children, or older people, or their constituents. It’s amazing how dedicated they are to it.”
Jeannine, warehouse volunteer at Fareshare London

FareShare London, Disabled People's Contact


“FareShare helps us improve the diets of people in the local community: we provide three of the recommended 5-a-day and are able to introduce seasonal variety into our meals.  This is especially important for those who cannot cook for themselves due to disability, as well as for those who are experiencing poverty.”
Erica at Disabled People’s Contact, Deptford
