Fighting hunger | Tackling food waste

FareShare Midlands is the region’s largest food redistribution charity. We take good quality surplus food from the food industry and get it to 450 frontline charities reaching more than 35,000 vulnerable people every week.

According to the government, more than a million people in the Midlands live in poverty and struggle to feed themselves and their families. These are the people our Members are trying to support.

Homelessness; unemployment; domestic abuse; and drug and alcohol addiction. These are some of the issues our Members are helping thousands of local people come to terms with.

Waste is a huge problem in the UK, with more than 300,000 tonnes of great food thrown away annually. Our goal is to redirect as much of this food as possible, so people in need can be fed.

We're making a difference...

Almost 60% of the organisations we work with, particularly charities and community groups, would not be able to survive without the support of FareShare Midlands. By accessing our surplus foods, they are able to save thousands of pounds every year. And often, these savings really make the difference, allowing them to stay open and continue making the vital and tangible contribution to the communities they are committed to serving. For without us, many could not stay open.

young people go hungry every day

Food poverty is a huge problem in cities like Nottingham, Leicester, Derby and Lincoln, and big towns like Northampton – particularly among people aged 18 and under. Yet perfectly good food is wasted every day by food retailers and the wider UK food industry. At FareShare Midlands, we are passionate about redirecting this food, so people who are going hungry, particularly young people, are able to receive at least one nutritious meal every day of the week.
