Grampian

FareShare Grampian distributes food to over 100 organisations in the North East of Scotland that are accessed by people experiencing food poverty. It is run by Community Food Initiatives North East (CFINE), which was set up in 1997 and has since become a successful social enterprise providing a range of services to thousands of people in Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire.


 Voices from FareShare Grampian…

FareShare Grampian, Aberdeen Cyrenians


“The food we serve helps keep people alive over the winter. Life on the street has a very detrimental effect on people’s mental and physical health and the food we serve is important for countering that. Food is the draw that brings people in to access our other support services.”
