FoodStock 2020

Help Finisterre and FareShare South West prevent hunger this winter. 

This winter is set to be extremely tough for many families and vulnerable people in our region. Finisterre is proud to support FareShare South West in tackling this winter crisis and helping them to reach their goal of providing ONE MILLION meals to people in need.

This weekend is set to be one of Finisterre’s busiest in the run-up to Christmas, so for every order placed over the weekend they will donate £2 to FareShare South West.

If you want to do more and help FareShare South West reach that target of one million meals, you’re in the right place. Scroll down to find out more about FoodStock 2020 and, if you can, please consider making a donation. Thank you for your support.

Help build a safety net to prevent hunger this winter

FoodStock 2020 is our campaign to build a stockpile of emergency food and the infrastructure to deliver it over a difficult winter.

As Covid-19 resurges across the nation and the likelihood of another lockdown increases, FareShare South West is building a stockpile of food and an action plan to deliver it to the most critically vulnerable in the South West. Between November 2020 and February 2021, we aim to redistribute food for over 1 million meals.

Back in March, we didn't have time to plan. This time, we do.

We intend this food to help bridge the food gap caused by this crisis, acting as the emergency, low-cost food supplier to hundreds of frontline organisations- from food banks to schools to homeless charities. We want to be primed and ready to launch food delivery into key pop-up food parcel operations as well as plugging food gaps in existing operations. We know we are only one part of the solution, but with support we know we can bolster our city and region.

To deliver FoodStock 2020 effectively within our capacity, we must be strategic, coordinated and targeted. We need Bristol to wrap its arms around our operation and support us. We need volunteers at our FoodStock 2020 warehouse in South Bristol, resources, engagement and donations.

Your donations will help us deliver food for the most vulnerable this winter.

Your donations make a real difference. They will go directly to covering our costs in getting food to those in need this winter- from van hire and fuel costs, to food sourcing, logistics and food parcel boxes, your donation can make this operation possible.

Each pound raised is enough for four meals for someone in need:

  • £5 covers our costs in making a family’s food parcel
  • £10 could provide food for 40 meals for someone in need this winter
  • £25 could cover our costs in delivering food for 100 children’s meals

Between March-August, support for our Coronavirus Emergency Appeal enabled us to deliver food for over 2 million meals- read our impact report here.
