0ne in four Bristol children are at risk of hunger. Help us change that.

No child should go hungry, but for many this is a daily reality- at school, over the holidays, or at home. This Autumn we are calling on our city to help us change the picture with our Big Breakfast Appeal.


We want to change the picture for children in need in our city and region. During our Big Breakfast Week, between 14th-18th October 2019 we’re getting together with Bristol business leaders, top chefs, school partners and more to raise awareness about child hunger. As a small charity which relies on local donations to survive, we need all the support we can get.



How does FareShare South West tackle child hunger?

We deliver food for thousands of children’s meals into areas of high deprivation in the South West. We know that child hunger happens every day of the year, in lots of different settings. The more high quality, low-cost food we can provide to front-line organisations, the more resilient a community is in supporting its vulnerable people. In the last 12 months, we have provided food for over 400,000 children’s meals- and counting. In Autumn 2019, we are providing food support to:

  • 60 School Breakfast Clubs
  • Over 150 Children’s Holiday Projects
  • FOOD Clubs and Pantries (shop-like set up for those in need)
  • Over 100 Community Projects working with children and families
