FSSW chosen as a finalist for Bristol Life Awards!

FareShare South West is delighted to have been chosen as one of the finalists for the Charity category of the Bristol Life Awards 2018!

The Bristol Life Awards celebrates the best of the city, from restaurants to arts and from shops to high-flying businesses.

The prestigious awards themselves will take place on the 26th April. We are very proud to be finalists, thanks to the hard work of all our volunteers, staff members and supporters who work

so hard to fight food poverty and food waste in our community. As a background charity, it is great to receive recognition for the work we do and have the opportunity to raise awareness of the issues we want to tackle. We have been sharing the great news with our team and celebrating in the warehouse!

We’re up against some stiff competition from some brilliant charities also nominated- watch this space for April 26th!

 

 

 

 

FareShare is the only charity to take food from the wholesale level of the food industry

The vast majority of surplus occurs before food even gets to the supermarket. Each FareShare regional centre takes that food and redistributes to those in need. FareShare Go is our supermarket collection service, which deals with supermarket-level surplus.
