volunteer awards

Celebrating our Volunteers

Recently, we celebrated the annual FareShare UK Volunteer Awards. Every year, we host a lunch for our volunteers. We also connect with other FareShare regional centres via live stream to recognise their hard work and dedication.

Our volunteers received recognition on three occasions, acknowledging their outstanding efforts in the fight against food poverty. All winners and highly commended volunteers received a framed certificate, to show our gratitude for their service.

Congratulations to our volunteers:

  • Sally Lamb – Winner of the Leadership in Volunteering Award.
  • FareShare Plus Team –  Winner of the Teamwork Award.
  • Les Waterhouse – Highly commended as Driver Volunteer of the Year.

We are so proud to have a team of selfless and hard-working volunteers who help FareShare Greater Manchester to run smoothly, and the volunteer awards is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate them.

As we celebrate our volunteers, we also invite others who may be inspired to join our cause. Volunteering with FareShare Greater Manchester is not only a chance to make a difference but also an opportunity for personal growth, community engagement, and meaningful connections.

At FareShare Greater Manchester, everyone can find a role, whether sorting food donations, driving deliveries or assisting with administrative tasks. Join us in our mission to tackle food poverty and build a more equitable and resilient society for all.

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
