South West

FareShare South West, based in Bristol, was set up in late 2007 to work with community groups in and around Bristol city. They support  over 170 organisations, including hostels, day centres, lunch clubs, addiction agencies, young people’s projects and refugee centres, in delivering a food service to those who need it most and giving support on nutrition, food hygiene and more.

FareShare enables these organisations to get people through the door and also to redirect their funds into improving their own services.


Voices from FareShare South West…

FareShare South West, Wild Goose Cafe


“The meals we provide (with food from FareShare) help our service users to build up their strength and provides a sense of community. Meals are a great way to build relationships with our service users, sometimes leading to us being invited to walk alongside them in their recovery.”
Jonnie at Wild Goose Drop-in Centre, Bristol

“If a young person is going through a change of circumstance or a crisis we can offer emergency support where they can get FareShare food.”
