Donate to FareShare East Midlands
You’re doing something amazing. No one should have to go hungry. Your support is the reason we can keep feeding people. We need your donations to redistribute good food that would otherwise go to waste to UK charities and community groups.
Britain is hungry. Having access to food is a basic human right and yet 8.4 million people in the UK are struggling to afford to eat. Food poverty affects not only the health and wellbeing of an individual but is also a barrier to personal development. 1 in 10 people including 1 in 4 children skip meals regularly.
At the same time 250,000 tonnes of food that is good enough to eat is wasted every year - enough for 650 million meals.
You can help in the fight against hunger by making a donation. Every donation made, no matter what size helps us to fight hunger across our communities.
If you switch to shopping through smile.amazon instead of amazon.com, they will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases straight to us, meaning we can help even more hungry people in the East Midlands.
