FareShare

FareShare works with the food and drink industry to save good quality surplus food from going to waste and distributes it to organisations working with the most vulnerable people in the community.

The aim is to deliver a food service to those who need it most, including homeless people, elderly people, children, refugees and people suffering mental and physical health problems.

The food provided saves the organisations money and means they can redirect funds into improving their essential services, such as housing advice, medical services and training on nutrition, food hygiene, etc., to help vulnerable people improve their lives.

Our warehouse

Move On manages and runs the Glasgow and West of Scotland branch of FareShare.

We supply a network of not-for-profit organisations, known as Community Food Members, from our Glasgow warehouse. Our Community Food Members include hostels, day centres, lunch clubs, addiction agencies, young people’s projects and refugee centres.

Spokes

We are also in the process of setting up “spokes” across the West of Scotland – collection points for local organisations who can’t access the FareShare Glasgow and West of Scotland warehouse in Glasgow.

We have already set up these spokes:

  • Ayrshire
  • North Lanarkshire

If your local not-for-profit, community or voluntary group may be interested in becoming a spoke location, please contact the FareShare Glasgow and West of Scotland warehouse on 0141 958 1133 or scott@moveon.org.uk

Community Food Membership

Charities or other organisations that use food and drink to help people in need can join FareShare Glasgow and the West of Scotland as Community Food Members.

To access the food, Community Food Members are asked to pay an annual membership fee of £1,150 per year. This is a vital income source for Move On, which allows us to rent a warehouse, lease vans and forklift trucks, contribute to our volunteer costs and employ staff who sort, store and manage the food.

Contact

If your local not-for-profit, community or voluntary group may be interested in becoming a Community Food Member, please contact Scott on 0141 958 1133 or scott@moveon.org.uk
