Sort, load and help deliver food to the front-line from Deptford
"I was taken aback by the sheer scale of the operation as well as the desperate need of those charities and organisation supported by Fareshare," Chris Hook
Who will I help?
Did you know that 3.9 million tonnes of food is thrown out each year by the UK’s food industry? That is the equivalent of 120 loaves of bread, 60 bags of pasta or 144 tins of baked beans for every person.
FareShare redistributes fresh-food – otherwise wasted – to front-line services supporting the 5.8 million people living in poverty.
They sort the food, load it onto vans and drive it out to charities such as Deptford Reach and Glassdoor, amongst many others.
How will I help?
Volunteer at Fareshare to distribute two tons of food each day, food that otherwise would be wasted, to people in great need.
You may find yourself helping out with:
• Sorting & cataloguing food products
• Preparing items for delivery
• Assisting drivers with their deliveries
You’ll be exhausted by the end of the day, but will feel incredibly satisfied that you helped to redirect resources, redress an imbalance and prevent waste.
