FareShare: No good food should go to waste
When we saw the problem of UK hunger, we found a solution. It’s simple really.
We redistribute surplus food to charities, who turn it into meals.
We are doers.
We are community.
We change lives.
How FareShare Works
FareShare redistributes surplus food from the food industry.
With the help of an army of volunteers.
They turn it into nutritious meals to 9,653 frontline charities and community groups, for just over 772,390 vulnerable people everyweek.
Last year we provided enough food for nearly 36.7 million meals.
FareShare in 2016
From January – June 2018, JDM Food Group provided 11.2 tonnes of surplus products to FareShare.
That’s enough for an estimated 26,484 meals
