1 in 8 people go hungry in the UK, yet perfectly good food is wasted every day.

Zebras Children and Adults Charity are Fareshare members.

We run weekly distributions of surplus food which is collected from Tesco’s and then handed directly to those who are in need of support. The collections aim to alleviate the effects of poverty and reduce the amount of food waste from large super market stores.

The project currently runs in Enfield, North London.

If you know of someone who may need support please refer them to us, we may be able to deliver surplus food weekly to them from the Fareshare project.

The Fareshare delivered to us on a Sunday evening has been a lifeline, its really helped my grand daughter as well who also has a disabled child, she rely’s on universal credit, the food the charity has given got her through 5 weeks of struggling for food, and it really helps me each week for my son”
