Voices from FareShare Thames Valley…

FareShare Thames Valley, Rose Hill Junior Youth Club


“The donated food from FareShare is incredible  – we couldn’t afford to buy it and feed that number of children otherwise. I think we must be saving about £9,000 a year on food. It’s also raised the quality of food that we offer and from a nutritional point of view it’s fantastic”
Fran Gardner, Rose Hill

FareShare Thames Valley, Oxfordshire Advice Centre


“We receive food weekly which enables us to provide three types of dishes during our day centers. It has a huge impact on people’s lives as many of them are socially isolated. The food brings people together and breaks down any language barriers.”
Oxfordshire Advice Centre
