Together we can campaignOver 620,000 people in Greater Manchester are living in poverty, including 180,000 children and young people. Together we can change that.

Food poverty continues to increase across the UK and Greater Manchester is no different. An estimated 620,000 people are struggling to access food on a daily basis. In the past, FareShare Greater Manchester provided over 3 million meals, supporting many thousands of people. There are still many more people who aren’t getting the food that they need on a daily basis. Consequently, demand for our services continues to grow. ​

We are seeking financial support to help FareShare Greater Manchester grow. This support will allow us to continue assisting people for whom hunger and food insecurity are a shocking yet normal part of everyday life across the region.

We want to be able to provide 7 million meals per year, allowing us to support an extra 20,000 people every year. To do this, we need to grow our operation including increasing food acquisition and increasing and improving our fleet of vehicles.

We can’t however do this alone and need to raise funds and so are seeking financial support to help us to continually grow. As a small independent charity that relies entirely on donations and grants, we receive no regular statutory funding, so your support is vital.

We believe that Together We Can provide 7 million meals to people in Greater Manchester who would otherwise go without food.

Together we can support over 220 charity and community groups who feed thousands of people across the Greater Manchester region.

We can tackle food waste together.

food waste

270,000 tonnes of perfectly edible food gets wasted by the food industry each year.

That’s enough for nearly 650,000,000 meals
