Chamber’s Charity of the Year

FareShare Yorkshire

FareShare Yorkshire works in partnership with the UK’s largest food charity, FareShare. We are part of a network of 21 regional centres located across the UK, of which we operate two (Barnsley and Leeds).

We are a community of independent franchised charities, all fighting the same issues: hunger, food insecurity issues and food waste. Over 270,000 tonnes of perfectly edible surplus food is thrown away each year. We want to see that food put to good use.

FareShare Yorkshire was formed in 1998 to help tackle the food poverty issues accross the county by redistributing surplus food across the region. FareShare Yorkshire source and redistribute quality, in date surplus food which would otherwise have go to waste, we turn an environmental problem into a social solution.
