FARESHARE

From Fairshare Today in the UK 8.4 million people are living in food poverty. At the same time, thousands of tonnes of edible food are going to waste. At least 270,000 tonnes of this surplus food comes from the food and drink industry and this equates to 650 million meals.

FareShare are tackling food waste and fighting hunger. We are on a mission to get as much of this surplus food from around the UK to charities and community groups to make it into meals for vulnerable people.

Could you help us? We are looking for volunteers to join our fantastic team at our Merseyside regional centre based in Speke. We need warehouse assistants and drivers to pick, pack, stack and distribute food. Our warehouse is open Monday-Friday, 9.00am – 5.00pm but you can volunteer at times to fit around you.
