FareShare is the UK’s largest food redistribution charity, redistributing surplus food from the food industry through a network of 11,000 frontline organisations across the UK. FareShare provides enough food to create almost a million meals for vulnerable people every week.

We can arrange:

  • Interviews with our expert spokespeople on a range of issues, including hunger and food waste
  • Visits to our 22 Regional Centres and, where appropriate, to the charities that benefit from the food
  • Interviews with regional spokespeople to give a local angle

If you’re looking for a filming location our Regional Centres are hives of activity, and present a unique chance to show the fight against hunger and food waste in action.


We’re sorry but we can’t help students with essays, journalism, or research projects as we’re a small team with limited capacity. You can find more information about our work. Alternatively, if you’d like to see the difference we make first-hand, you can volunteer.
