volunteer awards

Celebrating our Volunteers

Yesterday we celebrated the annual FareShare UK Volunteer Awards. Every year, we host a lunch for our volunteers, and connect with the other FareShare regional centers 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.

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.
