FareShare West Midlands redistributes surplus food to 151 organisations across West Midlands that work with people in need, from families on low income and older people at risk of isolation to those affected by homelessness and mental health issues. The charities FareShare works with provide crucial support services alongside freshly cooked nutritious meals. The West Midlands regional centre is managed directly by FareShare National.
“Volunteering makes you feel good about yourself, it’s a wonderful thing to do. Everyone laughs and jokes here. It’s a great place to be. If someone’s feeling down, they’ll listen and talk through what’s going on.”
Maria, volunteer at FareShare West Midlands
“Your mental health and physical health are linked and good food gives you energy, it lifts your mood. Good food is a tremendous boost for the people we support.”
Teresa Clements, Project Manager at Brushstrokes, supporting refugees.
