FareShare Go Support

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.

Register your interest in the form on this page and our team will be in touch to take you through the next steps. Once you’re ready to go, they will match you with a local store who will send you a text message on your preferred morning or evening to collect. Then simply pop into store and pick up the food from a friendly member of staff.

About the food

The food available to you is good quality food that can no longer be sold. This could be because it has damaged packaging, 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.

Which supermarkets take part in FareShare Go?

At least 2,500 Tesco stores give their surplus food to local charities through FareShare Go. This will mean that there will always be a couple of stores available to you, whether an express store or a superstore.

We are also currently trialling the scheme with Waitrose and hope to roll this out across the UK by the end of the year.

FareShare Go is located at the Circle, 33 Rockingham Ln, Sheffield S1 4FW.

Can my organisation receive food?

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.
