Vita Coco has been working with FareShare for just over a year and have provided the equivalent of 100,000 meals.
“We are incredibly proud to work with FareShare and join their mission to tackle hunger and food waste. The situation surrounding the pandemic has made us all aware of how many people are affected by food poverty in the UK and we want to help wherever we can.”
“Vita Coco is committed to continuing to provide support to FareShare and to be an active part of their community working to change lives.”
Tim Rees, Managing Director at Vita Coco

In 2020 alone the drinks were gratefully received by 1,934 frontline charities and community groups, including; 319 hostels and homeless supported housing, 399 food banks and drop-in services as well as 438 lunch clubs and day centres for vulnerable adults and elderly people.
Lindsay Boswell, FareShare Chief Executive, said: “We are pleased Vita Coco has been able to support FareShare with regular deliveries of surplus at a time where communities need it most. We look forward to building on our work with Vita Coco in the future.”
