Voices from FareShare Merseyside…

FareShare Merseyside, Vale House

“It’s about social isolation, helping older people who can’t get out. We pick them up in a mini-bus, bring them to the club where they receive a healthy nourishing meal and have the opportunity to meet and to make friends, then we take them back home. For many people, it’s the only time they leave the house.”
Ian at Vale House who use food from FareShare at their community lunches

FareShare Merseyside, Tony Generation Phoenix

“There’s very little money or grants out there. If we didn’t have Fareshare, a lot of the activities we wouldn’t be able to do. We‘re employing our first staff, now we’re able to do that. What we want to do, is include families and FareShare is a big part of that.”
Chef Tony at Generation Phoenix
