Give Us Your Surplus Food

We support frontline charities and community organisations across the Midlands, working hard to ensure local people in need can enjoy good food. 

Our members include community pantries and cafes, schools, colleges and training centres, homeless and youth shelters, and drop-in centres. They work tirelessly to support their local communities, turning our surplus food into delicious meals and affordable shopping for people struggling with food poverty. Collectively our food supports 83,000 people every single week.

Over 90% of our members agree they are able to access a wider variety and quantity of food through their partnership with FareShare Midlands. 85% say they are able to provide their beneficiaries with more fruit and vegetables, and more than half say that without a FareShare membership it is likely they would have to close their food services.
