Contract: Permanent

Salary: £28,000-£34,000

About FareShare

FareShare is the UK’s national network of charitable food redistributors, made up of 18

independent organisations. Together, we take good quality surplus food from right across the

food industry and get it to almost 11,000 frontline charities and community groups. During

2020, we redistributed 113 million meals through our FareShare Regional Centres and our

retail surplus model FareShare Go, reaching over 1 million people.

Hunger is a growing issue in the UK and while there is surplus food that is otherwise going to

waste, we believe that this food should be used to feed people first.

The COVID19 pandemic has shone a spotlight on the issue of food insecurity in the UK and

with it, FareShare’s ability to get food to vulnerable communities nationwide. We are

fortunate to benefit from the support of major retailers, the media, sports ambassadors and a

groundswell of public engagement. As a result, there has never been a more exciting time to

join an organisation at the heart of public consciousness.

FareShare’s Strategy & Vision

Vision: We have the vision of a UK where “No good food goes to waste”.

Mission: To use surplus, fit for consumption, food to feed those who are vulnerable in the UK

by supporting front line charitable organisations that tackle the cause and not just the

symptoms of food poverty.

Our Purpose: We are doers. We are a community. We change lives.

Our Values: Passion – for our cause and the challenge that lies ahead

Ambition – to go the extra mile and drive the change that must happen

Respect – for ourselves, each other, our volunteers, our partners and our beneficiaries

Collaboration – it’s only by working with others that we can be stronger

Focus – on providing the best service possible so that we deliver and

achieve the most for our clients/customers.
