Your Food Can Make A Difference In The North East

FareShare North East saves over 1,650 tonnes of good-to-eat surplus food from right across the food supply chain. We redistribute this food to over 200 charities and community groups in the region. These charities provide meals as part of their services to people in need – such as children’s breakfast clubs, day clubs for older people, domestic violence refugees, homeless shelters and drug and alcohol rehab units. In 2020/21 we provided enough food for over 4,813,096 meals.

Ian from ENGAGE, a charity that supports vulnerable young people, says:

“People here are very proud. By the time people ask us for help, they need it immediately, as they will have very little. The food from FareShare North East is allowing us to produce even more parcels”

For over 12 years, FareShare North East has been working closely with national, regional, and local food suppliers, as well as supermarkets and manufacturers to identify quality, surplus food that can be redistributed to charities and community groups in the region.

Our suppliers see our organisation as an ethical, safe, and positive alternative for their surplus food. Due to the challenges presented by Brexit and Covid-19, food volumes are decreasing across the country and we need support from local suppliers now more than ever so we can continue supporting vulnerable people.
