FareShare and the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation partnership bears fruit

14 March 2018

Over the last five years FareShare has been delighted to have the generous support of the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.

This has helped us to work with more food companies to significantly increase the amount of healthy fresh fruit and vegetables we provide to charities and community groups.To show the amazing difference they have made, we produced this short film to say thank you!



“Thanks to you The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, FareShare has grown massively – your funding has been transformational for us. ”

Lindsay Boswell – CEO FareShare


How you can help

8.4 million people across the UK are struggling to put food on the table. We think that is unacceptable, especially when so much good food is going to waste. We need your help to fight hunger and food waste today. £1 is enough to help deliver food for 4 meals. It’s the generosity and commitment of supporters like you that helps bring FareShare’s mission to life.

If you are a Trustee or a Grants Manager and would like to find out more how your trust or foundation can reduce food poverty in the UK, please contact the Trusts and Grants Team on [email protected] or click here to find out how you can donate.

“In the last five years, we have seen a significant increase in the amount of food that was brought into the FareShare network. Particularly in the areas of fruit and veg which is so important to the frontline charities that we support.

Much of this has been achieved as a result of the support that Esmée Fairbairn has provided.”

Mark Varney – Director of Food and Network Development
