FareShare Hull & Humber redistributes surplus food from the food industry to more than 120 organisations throughout the region, with more signing up every day to become Community Food Members (CFMs). This means that their network of CFMs is now feeding more than 10,500 people every week who are directly affected by food poverty.
FareShare Hull & Humber has developed excellent links with the food industry both locally and nationally and there are numerous opportunities in areas of volunteering, training and employability. If you are interested in finding out more please get in touch.
FareShare Hull & Humber is run in partnership with the Goodwin Development Trust, an organisation that provides a whole Family of Services designed to improve quality of life for all our communities.
“People say to myself and to all the other volunteers that we do a wonderful job, but it’s only because we have people helping us like FareShare that we can do the job.”

“When we deliver their meal, we’re also making sure that they’ve had at least one visitor that day, so we can help to make them feel less isolated. We can also give them a loaf of bread, or a few tins that have been donated to FareShare, for a nominal price like 10p or 20p, so they don’t feel like they’re getting charity.”
