Fareshare Cymru logoDoes your organisation use food? Do you want to save money on your food bills? Then FareShare Cymru may be able to help.

FareShare Cymru is a registered food redistribution charity based in Cardiff, operating throughout South Wales. They are excited to be expanding their service to include Swansea.

FareShare secure good quality surplus food and drink from the food industry. They redistribute good food that would otherwise go to waste to frontline charities and community groups supporting vulnerable people, providing them with a value for money option for their supply food and drink. This may be for their kitchens, the kitchens used by residents, cooking classes, food parcels, breakfast clubs, after school clubs etc. 

FareShare has been invaluable to our daily luncheon club that we run here ... They have helped not only financially but have also enabled us to pass food products on to isolated people in our community. The quality of the produce we receive is fantastic!

Moorland Road Community Centre

Food becomes surplus for a whole range of reasons from packaging errors to short date coding or cosmetic imperfections; but all the food they provide is within its use by or best before date, and they follow stringent policies and procedures for storage and transportation to meet all food safety legislation.

From marvellous meat, dairy and fish to flavoursome fruit and veg; the food they save is good quality, in date and could help to provide a healthy varied menu for the people you support.

The variety of food allows the chefs to be creative and gives the residents choice and variation.  Our canteen can be packed, it brings our residents and staff together. It’s so good to see that additional food is not going to waste, but more importantly going to people that actually need it.

They work with a huge range of charities and community organisations including hostels for the homeless, women's refuges, refugee centres, youth groups, community centres, community cafes, lunch clubs, churches, school holiday clubs, community pantry’s and many more.

If what you do isn’t on the list give them a call or drop them a line and ask if they can help you. If you are using food regularly for social good, the chances are they can!
