FareShare North West Open Day

Since Starting FareShare North West in 2008 together we have redistributed over 500 tonnes of food saved from bin/landfill, equalling 1.19 million meals for the vulnerable in our region.

Our open days are run to encourage existing members to come and see the warehouse and find out where the food comes from, who it goes to and why FareShare North West do the work that they do. Non-members are also welcome to come along and visit the warehouse and hopefully become members.

There will be opportunities to meet the volunteers at FareShare North West and have a look at the work they do, and hopefully encourage more people to come and volunteer. There is also a food demonstration, showing people the healthy meals you can make with the food donated by FareShare North West.

FareShare North West have had some major successes over the last year, i.e. in November, 26 pallets of food were donated by BEFA and successfully redistributed. FareShare supplies over 50 beneficiary groups in the region, e.g homeless shelters, day centres for the elderly and refugee support centres, in our 2 year plan we hope to double that amount of beneficiaries.

Our first open event was a resounding success, despite the snow and we will be holding another open day on 21st January 2011, 11am- 2pm. To RSVP just call 0161 223 8200.
