Give Us Your Surplus Food

Your company can make a huge difference to the lives of people living in poverty across the Midlands.

There’s a variety of ways your company can get involved with FareShare Midlands. Your support can help us redirect even more food onto the plates of vulnerable people.

Our corporate partnerships programme can provide your company with incredible Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), while strengthening your brand and driving up staff engagement.

Each corporate partnership is unique. We will work with you to create a tailored programme to ensure that your partnership is successful.


Ways your business can help

From volunteering to fundraising, payroll giving and commercial opportunities, our experienced team can design a bespoke partnership that’s right for your business and ensure that your support has real impact in your community.

Every £1 could provide four meals to children in need. You could choose to make a much needed donation to support our work in the Midlands.

You could make a contribution towards the costs of delivery vehicles, our running costs, or other capital items which support our operation. Alternatively, you could raise valuable funds by organising a corporate day and asking your suppliers to be involved by sponsoring the event.

By choosing FareShare Midlands as your Charity of the Year you can encourage staff, customers and suppliers to work together to support our work. From team building and payroll giving to staff volunteering, we’ll help you meet your employee engagement and CSR objectives. The experience will be fun and interactive and will help us to feed thousands of vulnerable people every day.

This can be a fantastic way to align your products and services with our charity. It can drive sales, reach new audiences and help to raise awareness of the issue of food poverty in our community.

Whether it’s running a marathon, holding a bake sale or taking part in a sponsored challenge, every penny you raise will help us to save more food from going to waste and get it onto the plates of vulnerable people. There are so many ways to fundraise in the workplace … from quiz nights to auctions, raffles to clothes swaps, discos to dress down days, or holding your own eco-friendly challenge!

This can include anything from a quiz to a ball. Events can also include challenges, from zip wiring to overseas treks. The possibilities are endless and it's a great way to get your staff, customers and suppliers involved.

Payroll Giving, or Give As You Earn as it is sometimes known, is a simple way to make regular tax free donations to FareShare Midlands. Just £5 per month could provide enough food for 240 meals over a year.
