Our FareShare Go service gives you access to free surplus food for your charity or community group. You will have the opportunity to collect it from a local supermarket. It’s all good quality, in date and tasty too.
Once you’re ready to go, FareShare Go will match you with your local store which will send you a notification on your chosen donation day to collect. Then simply pop into store and pick up the food from a friendly member of staff.
The food available to you is good quality food that can no longer be sold. This could be because it has damaged packaging or has a short shelf life. This doesn’t have an impact on the standard or safety of the food items available. Food available often includes bread, eggs and fresh fruit. It will always be within its use by date and good to eat.
FareShare Go works with a number of retailers, including Tesco, ASDA and Waitrose & Partners, to redistribute their perfectly good to eat surplus food from stores to local charities.
Around 3,000 stores are now taking part in the programme across the UK, with new ones joining every week.
The food varies from store to store and from supermarket to supermarket, but helps charities and community groups to reduce their weekly food budgets.
In order to receive food, your organisation needs to be equipped to receive, store, prepare and serve food safely. You will be visited by one of the FareShare Go team to make sure that you use the food in accordance with relevant safety and handling guidelines.
“The quality and amount of produce has been fantastic. We have been able to use the food for our free lunch club and are doing our bit to reduce waste.”
