We did it!! Over £5,000 raised from Big Breakfast Appeal

We are over the moon to announce that we smashed our fund raising target for our Big Breakfast Appeal- raising over £5,000 from the public in a matter of weeks! 

A HUGE thank you to everyone who supported us. We are very grateful for your generosity, which will allow us to do so much more. The funds will be used to supply schools in the most deprived areas of our communities with food for Breakfast Clubs, After-School Clubs, food parcels and Holiday projects. 

Providing one school with food for an entire year costs us just £1,000. That could be enough to provide food to 100 children who are at risk of hunger. Our aim is to get food into networks working directly with the most vulnerable families in our community. With FareShare food provision, a local family experiencing food insecurity could receive access to a free Breakfast and after school food for their children every day at their primary school, food parcels to help through tough times, and meals at a holiday club to help out when schools close. 

We are now looking to expand this provision right across Bristol and Bath, working with local authorities and partners to provide a joined up approach to the issue.

Our appeal page is remaining open, so if you still want to support, please follow this link: https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/bigbreakfast

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 member of the FareShare network rescues that food and delivers it to those in need. FareShare Go is our supermarket collection service, which deals with supermarket-level surplus.
