Northern Ireland

FareShare Northern Ireland is directly tackling food poverty in Northern Ireland by collecting surplus food from industry and redistributing it to charities that are providing meals to vulnerable and disadvantaged groups, including low income families, senior citizens, people with disabilities, victims of domestic violence, at risk young people and homeless people. The Northern Ireland warehouse has been operating successfully for over six years and last year provided 87 charitable projects located in Belfast, Derry, Antrim, Ballymena, Armagh and Cookstown with enough food for over half a million meals.

As well as providing food producers with a safe, environmentally friendly and ethical solution to the disposal of waste, FareShare Northern Ireland has provided 54 volunteers with valuable work experience and training in areas such as Food Hygiene, Fork Lift driving and Health and Safety.

FareShare Northern Ireland, Welcome Organisation


“Serving good food shows that we care. We serve good wholesome nosh made from scratch. Shepherd’s pie, spaghetti bolognaise. Each week we check what we have from FareShare before we make up the menu.  Usually one of the first questions we get from families is what’s for lunch today?!”
Grant McCullough, Project Manager at Quaker Cottage, which suppports families through times of need

 “Many of those who use our services are experiencing destitution; the food we provide is their only source of food.  In our current economic climate it is challenging to find the funding to provide healthy and nutritious meals, but it is absolutely vital that we do so. In this respect, FareShare have been our lifeline.”
Sandra Moore, Welcome Organisation
