Help Fight Food Poverty

Sign up to FareShare North East Now

Over 70,000 children in the North East alone are unable to access quality healthy food on a regular basis. We currently supply just over 90 groups with food who in turn provide food to 4,000 vulnerable people. There are many more projects that desperately need more supplies. It’s clear that many more community projects could support many more people with FareShare food.

We need individuals and/or organisations to sponsor community groups to receive this much needed service.
