Southern Central

Operating since April 2014, FareShare Southern Central provides good quality food to charities and community organisations in Hampshire. We support breakfast clubs, food banks, lunch clubs for older people, night shelters, day centres, community cafes and projects supporting vulnerable young people and those with addictions and mental health. Working closely with the food and drink industry we ensure that no good food goes to waste.

Volunteering

It would be impossible to carry out our vital work without the dedication of our volunteers.  We are always looking for new people to join us. If you can spare a minimum of five hours every fortnight, are happy to attend training and induction, we would love to hear from you.

Currently we are looking for:

  • Warehouse Assistants: Working within the warehouse you will be sorting and picking orders.
  • Drivers/Drivers Mate: You will be the face of FareShare Southern Central delivering food throughout the city.
  • Fundraisers: To grow our project we need to raise funds! If you enjoy organising events then this role could be for you

Voices from FareShare Southern Central…

FareShare Southern Central, PoitiersCare


“We are there for people who are really struggling. We’re like a food bank but a delivery service. If someone doesn’t have to worry about paying for food they can use that money to pay for other items they need, enabling them to rebuild their lives in the long term.”
Graham at Poitiers Care

FareShare Southern Central, Townsend Childrens Centre Lynn cooking group leader


“We’ve made everything from pork joints to spicy carrot soup using food from FareShare.  While the original aim is about teaching about healthy eating , I think the most important aspect is lifting the mood of parents. Some parents have post-natal depression or are socially isolated so having other adults to talk to and interact with is very important.”
Tania at Barnado’s Townsend childrens centre which runs a cooking class for parents
