Fundraise for charity today

Join the fight to end hunger and tackle food waste in Greater Manchester.

Fundraising for FareShare Greater Manchester helps us to continue to redistribute quality food to vulnerable people across Greater Manchester.

We receive no statutory funding and rely entirely on donations and grants to keep doing the work that we do. Every pound raised helps us to provide 4 meals for people who may otherwise go without food.

Whatever your skills, interests of sporting passions, there is a fundraising option to suit you.

Run for Charity

We’re signed up with Run for Charity which means that we can offer subsidised places at some of Manchester’s biggest running events! Join Team FareShare GM and see what fundraising charity events we’ve got coming up. We offer our runners a free fundraising kit, including a FareShare GM t-shirt, fundraising advice and regular email updates.

If you have your own place in a running event and would like to raise money for us, we can still provide our support. However, unfortunately we will not be able to contribute towards your registration fee.

Our upcoming events:

Manchester Marathon

14th April 2024 – Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester, M16 0PX

Please note that although we have reduced price registration available, registration costs between £30-£60 depending on the event and some have a limited number of places.

food redistribution charity

FareShare is the only charity to take food from the wholesale level of the food industry

The vast majority of surplus occurs before food even gets to the supermarket. Each FareShare regional centre takes that food and redistributes to those in need. FareShare Go is our supermarket collection service, which deals with supermarket-level surplus.
