FareShare is a national charity fighting food poverty by tackling food waste. We source food from food retailers and manufacturers which is surplus to requirements and engage many volunteers to help re-distribute this to local Community Food Members (CFMs) who provide meals to vulnerable people (individuals who are homeless, unemployed, socially isolated, or recovering from addictions). FareShare now operates 20 regional centres around the UK in partnership with various partners, including EMERGE.
FareShare Greater Manchester has been run by EMERGE 3Rs since 2008. EMERGE is a charity that has been active in the 3Rs (reduce, reuse and recycle) since 1996. From our regional centre based on New Smithfield Market we redistribute food to over 200 CFMs.
You would be joining a committed team of paid staff and volunteers working hard to increase the amount of food we can receive and send out to our member organisations.
