FareShare Hull & Humber is run by The Goodwin Development Trust. It redistributes surplus food from the food industry to more than 100 organisations throughout the region – with more signing up every day to become Community Food Members (CFMs). This means that FareShare Hull and Humber’s network of CFMs is now feeding more than 12,000 people who are directly affected by food poverty. If you are a community organization working with people who are who are struggling to put food on the table – then get in touch or find out more by going to our Sign-Up page.

FareShare also helps the environment by minimizing the amount of food sent to landfill and helping businesses reduce CO2 emissions.

FareShare Hull & Humber has developed excellent links with the food industry both locally and nationally – if you are a food company in our region and are interested in donating surplus food – then we’d love to hear from you.

How FareShare Works

FareShare-002

Every week, FareShare Hull & Humber receives tonnes of surplus food from the food industry at our depot on Malmo Rd in Hull. This food is of excellent quality and is surplus for a whole number of reasons ranging from incorrect barcoding to over-manufacture – never because it is out of date. We in turn deliver that food every week to our network of 70 Community Food Members (CFMs) who are working with disadvantaged people throughout the region.

Each week we can email or fax our CFMs the details of what we have in stock – and that can be quite a wide ranging offer from fresh food to ambient packaged food of all descriptions. Our Community Food Members then tell us what they would like delivered that week – and we deliver it. Simple.

The food FareShare delivers is used by our Community Food Members in a variety of ways – which range from cooking basic meals and offering nutrition tuition to offering food parcels to struggling families or meal-on-wheels for the elderly and vulnerable.

Talk to us about how FareShare food could work for you – we can also put you in touch with other Community Food members who can tell you themselves how much of a positive impact FareShare has had both on the people they work with and also on their overheads – on average a Community Food Member can save up to £13,000 per annum on food bills.
