Give back this Christmas and join FareShare at this year's biggest food collection. We are looking for volunteers to give a few hours of their time to help feed people in need.

Volunteers would be in store handing out 'shopping lists' to customers and collecting donations. It's a good opportunity to volunteer as a group or on your own, and to meet new people. Grab your Santa hat and spread some Christmas cheer.

Watch our animation and find out how the collection works:

At FareShare, we rescue fresh surplus food that would otherwise go to waste and deliver it to 2,135 charities allowing them to provide a vital lifeline for disadvantaged people. 

Whilst we have a steady supply of quality fresh produce, those store cupboard essentials, thanks to their long shelf life, don't often appear as surplus. Each year we partner with Tesco for our National Food Collection where we stock up on these essentials.
