FareShare is a charity consisting of 20 Regional Centres aimed at relieving food poverty and reducing food waste in the UK. It does this by rescuing good quality surplus food that would otherwise have gone to waste and sending it to almost 10,000 charity and community groups across the United Kingdom
FareShare manages 3 key centres and provides a network of third-party independent of other charities with central support. FareShare also provides a service, known as FoodCloud, which reduces store level food waste and contributes £2m to the charities income.
- The FareShare charity seems to well connected within the sector and to its important supporters.
- Waste elimination and better use of resources is a political high profile cause and likely to continue attracting attention and support.
- FareShare externally seems to be financially well set up and in a position to deliver on its objectives.
- Income from individuals is not critical so in our opinion support should be directed towards the charities delivering the food and service.
