FareShare Cymru is based on the outskirts of Cardiff and serves charities and community organisations across South Wales.
Last year, FareShare Cymru saved 511 tonnes of surplus food from waste – enough to provide almost 950,000 meals – which was diverted to 136 organisations, including homeless shelters, school breakfast clubs and community centres.
Volunteers are key to FareShare Cymru’s success and new people are always welcome. Volunteer to help alleviate food poverty and food waste in the region.

“Food is something that is not always people’s first priority, like paying for a roof over their head, or paying their debts, or just surviving in general; whereas having this relationship with FareShare allows us to put food right back in the heart of things.”

“Our fresh food is relished. The healthy food we provide ensures a healthier lifestyle for our users and benefits many people who could not otherwise afford a daily cooked meal.”
