the big picture

Globally one third of all food produced is wasted and accounts for 8-10% of all Greenhouse Gas Emissions. In the UK there is an estimated 2 million tonnes* of edible food that is wasted each year. This is starkly set against the rise in hunger and food insecurity in the UK and beyond.

What do we do?

We rescue surplus from the food industry to save waste and reduce carbon emissions. We then redistribute the food to charities and community groups supporting those facing hunger and food insecurity to maximise its impact and social value.

The FareShare Network in the UK now has more than 30 regional centre’s. Each year the network as a whole rescues and redistributes over 50,000 tonnes of food.
