FareShare Thames Valley redistributes food to South Oxfordshire charities from its base in Didcot. The team also provide warehouse training opportunities to those out of work in the local area. If you are interested in training and volunteering opportunities or work for a local charity that would like to receive food, get in touch with Project Manager Richard Kennell.
“The donated food from FareShare is incredible – we couldn’t afford to buy it and feed that number of children otherwise. I think we must be saving about £9,000 a year on food. It’s also raised the quality of food that we offer and from a nutritional point of view it’s fantastic”
Fran Gardner, Rose Hill
“We receive food weekly which enables us to provide three types of dishes during our day centers. It has a huge impact on people’s lives as many of them are socially isolated. The food brings people together and breaks down any language barriers.”
