FareShare South Westis a charity which takes surplus food from the food industry and redistributes it to over 150 members across the South West. Their members in turn transform it into nutritious meals for vulnerable people for a fraction of the cost. They take wholesale quantities of food from the big food retailers, store it in their Bristol warehouse, and redistribute it across the region with the help of an army of volunteers. They stock everything from meat to cheese and from baked beans to fresh fruit, all good quality and in-date.
FareShare South West is currently able to support new members- large and small! They are members of the BANES 3rd Sector Group and keen to speak with other 3SG members who could use their food. Please get in touch with Phoebe Ruxton via email@example.com, or call 0117 954 2220.
