Getting surplus food direct from local stores to charities for free
If you are a charity or community group that uses food to support people, you can sign up to FareShare FoodCloud and collect good quality, surplus food from Tesco stores for free!
“It went well and the food was superb, particularly the fruit and vegetables, which we always are desperately in need of.”
How does it work?
FareShare provides the people power that ensures that charities are safely matched with a suitable store and that they are supported to get the most out of their store collections. FareShare FoodCloud really is a simple solution – the technology behind it means that charities only need to be able to receive text messages from their local Tesco store.
What areas of the UK does FareShare FoodCloud cover?
Over 1,000 Tesco stores across the UK are now redistributing their surplus food through FareShare FoodCloud.
Can my organisation receive food?
In order to receive food, your organisation needs to be equipped to receive, store, prepare and serve food safely. Charities and community groups will be visited by someone from the team at FareShare to make sure that they use the food in accordance with relevant safety and handling guidelines.
I’m already signed up to FareShare FoodCloud and have a question about my collection, who do I speak to?
