FareShare Yorkshire supports over 183 charities and community groups across 2,500 sq miles covering Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley, Doncaster, Huddersfield, Leeds, Bradford, Halifax and York. FareShare Yorkshire has been operating for 19 years from its Barnsley base and now has a Sub-Regional Centre in Leeds working in partnership with Leeds City Council and the Leeds Food Aid Network.

They provide support, through the surplus food they deliver, to community groups that feed vulnerable people in Yorkshire communities. Volunteer opportunities and an Employability Programme of accredited QCF training in Warehousing and Fork Lift Truck operation along with Mentoring support also helps individuals on a path to employment. Our Employability Programme is funded by the Big Lottery Fund.

To find out more about these opportunities contact Gareth Batty.
