Fundraise for FareShare

We have lots of ideas and suggestions to help you fundraise for FareShare: from simple ideas to involving your friends or colleagues, through to more adventurous activities & challenges such as swimming, running or cycling.

Take on a challenge

Whether running, swimming or cycling is your thing, taking on a challenge can boost your fitness, improve mental health and give you a goal to work towards. Fundraising for FareShare can have an incredible impact as every £1 = 4 meals!

If you have your own place in a challenge event we’d love to hear from you, and we can share our top tips to maximise your fundraising.

Organise an event

Throw a bash to raise some cash. Whatever you’re into, there are plenty of ways to get some friends together and raise some money to support our work. Be creative – host a ‘food waste’ themed dinner party, a cocktail evening, or a summer picnic, or you can host a quiz for those with a competitive streak, a bake sale or a sports tournament!

Give it up

Whether it’s alcohol, chocolate, coffee or crisps – the savings you can make on giving up your ‘treats’ for a month or two can really add up. The price of a medium latte can provide up to 10 meals for vulnerable and hungry people in the UK. Try giving it up for FareShare and donating the money you save to fight hunger and food waste.
