Careers

Despite all the amazing FareShare statistics around number of meals, numbers of charities and community groups, value of the savings we bring to these organisations, we are still only redistributing 6% of the surplus food that is fit for human consumption and could be redistributed. That 6% number drives us more than any other and we are focusing on getting to 20-25% of all surplus food.

To help us manage and achieve this growth we need to plan for success… and that may be where you come in.


Watch our film to see how FareShare is helping to transform lives. We also often need volunteers to help us save and deliver food to local communities. Find a volunteer opportunity near you on our volunteering page.
