Over 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 with an estimated 620,000 people struggling to access food on a daily basis. Last year FareShare Greater Manchester provided over 3 million meals, supporting many thousands of people. But there are still many more people who aren’t getting the food that they need on a daily basis and the demand for our services continues to grow. ​

We are seeking financial support to enable FareShare Greater Manchester to grow. All in order to continue to support the people for whom hunger and food insecurity are a shocking yet normal part of their everyday life across the region.

By 2022 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 operations which includes securing a larger Warehouse to allow us to receive, process and redistribute more food.

We can’t however do this alone and we 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.

Together we can tackle food waste.

The food waste hierarchy calls for food to feed people first

Food companies are legally obliged to use food to feed people before sending to anaerobic digestion or for animal feed. We help them use their surplus to feed people first.
