Volunteers will be in store handing out FareShare “shopping lists” with suggestions of what to donate and collecting donations from customers whilst spreading some Christmas cheer.
The food they collect will then be redistributed to nearly 11,000 charities across the country. Sign up to volunteer as an individual or bring your colleagues, family and friends with you.
You can make a big difference to the 8.4 million people currently living in food poverty in the UK.
Shockingly, even at Christmas, millions of people are just scraping by — without enough food for them or their family. FareShare takes good quality, in date surplus food that would otherwise have been wasted, and redistributes it to frontline charities.
Summer should be a time of fun and excitement for children, but for many this is not the case. To help combat the issue of Holiday Hunger, FareShare’s #ActiveAte programme is supplying food to over 400 holiday projects this summer, providing nutritious meals and snacks for approximately 50,000 children across the UK.
FareShare wants the Government to #feedpeoplefirst and to provide a level playing field so that delivering good surplus food to charities like FareShare costs food companies the same as sending it to anaerobic digestion or animal feed.
