About FareShare

FareShare is the UK’s largest food redistribution charity, working with a network of 18 independent organisations to make sure good quality surplus food reaches people who need it most, rather than being wasted. We rescue food from farms, factories, supermarkets and food outlets and send it to almost 9,000 charities working on the frontline to support their communities. FareShare food nourishes people in need and connects them with vital support services to help them build a brighter future.

Every day, millions of people skip meals or go without any food, driven to food insecurity by the cost of living crisis. Yet at the same time, over three million tonnes of good to eat food goes to waste in the UK – enough for 7 billion meals.

In 2023/24, FareShare redistributed enough food for almost 135 million meals, but we know there is more food out there that could be used to support communities in need rather than needlessly wasted. This is an exciting time to join FareShare, as we embark on a new, ambitious three-year strategy that will maximise the social and environmental impact of rescuing surplus food.

FareShare’s Strategy & Vision

Vision: We have the vision of a UK where “No good food goes to waste”.

Mission: To use surplus, fit for consumption, food to feed those who are vulnerable in the UK by supporting frontline charitable organisations that tackle the cause and not just the symptoms of food poverty.

Our Values: Passion – for our cause and the challenge that lies ahead.

Ambition – to go the extra mile and drive the change that must happen.

Respect – for ourselves, each other, our volunteers, our partners and our beneficiaries.

Collaboration – it’s only by working with others that we can be stronger.

Focus – on providing the best service possible so that we deliver and achieve the most for our clients/customers.
