We believe that no good food should go to waste
We redistribute surplus food to charities that turn it into meals.
We are doers. We are a community. We change lives.

FareShare is operated in NI by Homeless Connect. FareShare NI is part of the UK’s national network of charitable food redistributors and the largest food redistribution organisation in Northern Ireland.
