Get involved with FareShare

Last autumn, you helped us donate meals to the elderly, homeless and other vulnerable people in your area with our Million Meal Appeal.

We matched every donation you made to the Million Meal Appeal, so together we helped FareShare provide even more meals to people who need them most.

Helping feed those in need

How can I help?

Missed the Million Meal Appeal instore this autumn? There are still lots of ways you can help FareShare. Make a one-off or regular donation online, become a volunteer at one of its depots around the UK or sign up to its newsletter for details of upcoming events. And look out for our Million Meal Appeal next year.

Who will benefit?

When you donated to the Million Meal Appeal at Sainsbury’s, the food was redistributed to disadvantaged people in your area. We gave the food to FareShare, which has warehouses around the UK. FareShare distributes all the food it receives, including your Million Meal donations, to its network of 720 community groups.
