About Us


Supporting communities to relieve food poverty

FareShare is a tried and tested model, operating since 2004 as an independent charity across the UK and today has 20 regional centres. Established in 1994 as a project within the homelessness charity Crisis, FareShare aims to help vulnerable groups, whether they are homeless, elderly, children, or other groups in food poverty within our communities.

FareShare Cymru was established in 2010 and began delivering food in July 2011. We are at the centre of two of the most urgent issues that face the UK – food poverty and food waste.

Our vision is of a Wales where no good food goes to waste. A Wales where food waste is minimised and any surplus food is used to benefit those that need it most.

Our aim is to divert the edible food currently treated as waste by the food manufacturers and retailers and distribute it to disadvantaged people across Wales who can benefit by eating it.

We turn an environmental problem into a social solution, helping to feed thousands of people each week.
