Trusts and Foundations

Support from Trusts, Foundations, Lotteries and Statutory funders enables FareShare to deliver transformational projects, expand our reach and continue our life-changing work. With your help, we can fight hunger and food waste in the UK.

We can work with you to make the most out of your gift. Furthermore, with regular reports and field visits, you will gain a real insight into our work and the difference you are making.

We are pleased to count The Big Lottery Fund, Garfield Weston Foundation and many others among our supporters. Here are just some of the ways that a donation can make a difference.

Esmee Fairbank Foundation

The Esmee Fairbairn Foundation are long-term supporters of FareShare. Their most recent grant of £500,000 over five years provides sustainability to core functions. This includes our food team, who procure surplus food, and our operations team, who make sure it gets to our charities and community groups. They are the very lifeblood of FareShare.

The Drapers Company

FareShare is very grateful for a three-year grant from The Drapers’ Charitable Fund in support of FareShare London. In the first year of funding, Drapers’ helped FareShare to save over 800 tonnes of food. This food was redistributed to 240 charities and community groups in London. Over the course of the five years, the grant will enable FareShare to redistribute enough food for 120,000 meals in the capital.

Fidelity Foundation

Fidelity awarded FareShare a grant of £244,000 for a truly transformational project: a new Operations Management System. The system will improve tracking of every food item that moves through the FareShare network. This begins at the donation point via a food supplier and ends with the delivery to a charity or community group. This will improve current quality assurance systems.  It will also enable FareShare to expand to reach our goal of redistributing 100,000 tonnes of food each year.

 Every £1 that you give to FareShare helps us provide four meals to vulnerable people across the UK.
