How does it work?
We use simple technology, provided by our partner FoodCloud, to match charities and community groups directly with a local Tesco store that has surplus food. By all working together we cut down on waste, save organisations money and help provide nutritious meals to people in need.
When is it coming to my area?
We will be launching FareShare FoodCloud in 120 Tesco stores in these major cities this February: Edinburgh, London, Portsmouth and Southampton, Belfast, Swansea , Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow, Liverpool and Birmingham. In Spring we will be rolling out the service to the rest of the country.
We’d like to hear from charities and community groups across the UK that are interested in collecting food. Register your interest now by filling out the form on the right and we can start the process for when the stores in your area start donating.
Can my organisation receive food?
In order to receive food, your organisation needs to be equipped to receive, store, prepare and serve foods safely. Charities and community groups will be visited by FareShare to make sure that they use the food in accordance with food safety and handling guidelines.
