At FareShare we will do everything we can to continue delivering food to vulnerable people.
“During this crisis we urge you all to continue supporting us in any way you can, whether that’s by sharing our message, donating or volunteering to help in our warehouses.”
During this time of crisis, we are providing an emergency response, delivering vital food supplies to frontline organisations providing a lifeline to those most in need. These include older people and those with serious health conditions, and children who would usually access free school meals, and are at greater risk of hunger and malnutrition as a result of school closures.
During these incredibly worrying and difficult times it’s important we remain positive, so we wanted to take a moment to recognise the astonishing kindness, generosity and support we have seen over the last week.
We are extremely grateful to everyone who has offered their support by donating, sharing our message and most importantly volunteering at this challenging time.
Unfortunately, due to the enormous outpouring of support and our limited resources, we haven’t been able to respond to everyone directly to thank them, so are using this to say a collective thank you.
FareShares volunteers are on the frontline of the coronavirus crisis, delivering vital food supplies to vulnerable people across the UK. We are incredibly grateful for your help. By volunteering with FareShare you are ensuring that those in most need do not go without. Thank you for everything you do.
Thank you so much for donating to FareShare. Your donation will help us get food out to vulnerable people during this crisis. Just £10 can provide enough food to create 40 meals so your gift will go a very long way.
Thank you to all our wonderful food partners who have gone above and beyond to make sure that we can continue supporting our network of charities and community groups. FareShare’s work is now needed more than ever and we could not do it without the support of the many food companies who have managed to find the time and the resources to support us even at this very difficult time - a big thank you to every one of you!
We would also like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has shared our message online, ensuring we can maintain volunteer numbers and keep our service running. A very special mention must go to England and Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford who partnered with last week to raise awareness about what we’re doing to help vulnerable people, including children who are at risk of hunger and malnutrition. We’re very grateful for the support and, of course, his generous donation to our cause.
FareShare’s goal throughout this crisis has been to ensure that the most vulnerable people in our communities do not go hungry, but we recognise there is an immense challenge ahead. This is just the beginning of what looks set to be a long and difficult road ahead. During this crisis we urge you all to continue supporting us in any way you can, whether that’s by sharing our message, donating or volunteering to help in our warehouses.
