Does your organisation use food? Do you want to save money on your food bills? Then FareShare Cymru may be able to help.
FareShare Cymru is a registered food redistribution charity based in Cardiff, operating throughout South Wales. We are excited to now be expanding our service to include Swansea.
FareShare secures good quality surplus food and drink from the food industry. FareShare redistribute good food that would otherwise go to waste to frontline charities and community groups supporting vulnerable people, providing them with a value for money option for their supply food and drink. This may be for their kitchens, the kitchens used by residents, cooking classes, food parcels, breakfast clubs, after school clubs etc.
Food becomes surplus for a whole range of reasons from packaging errors to short date coding or cosmetic imperfections. But all the food FareShare provides is within its use by or best before date and stringent policies and procedures are followed for storage and transportation to meet all food safety legislation.
From marvellous meat, dairy and fish to flavoursome fruit and veg, the food we save is good quality, in date and could help you provide a healthy varied menu for the people you support.
FareShare works with a huge range of charities and community organisations including hostels for the homeless, women's refuges, refugee centres, youth groups, community centres, community cafes, lunch clubs, churches, school holiday clubs, community pantry’s and many more. If what you do isn’t on the list—give them a call or ann e-mail and ask if they can help you. If you are using food regularly for social good, the chances are they can!
FareShare are now inviting organisations in Swansea to express an interest in becoming Community Food Members.
If your organisation or project supports vulnerable people in your community and you are a charity, not-for-profit organisation, community group or a social enterprise providing a meal or food service, please get in touch to find out more.
