Fighting hunger | Tackling food waste

FareShare South West is the region’s largest food redistribution charity. We take good quality surplus food from the food industry and deliver it to more than 400 charities across the South West. Last year we provided enough food for 5 million meals.

As the cost of living increases and more people are forced into food poverty, FareShare South West is facing new challenges. We rely on donations, volunteers and partnerships to stop people from going hungry and get as much good quality surplus food as possible to schools, charities and community groups across our region.
