Case Study: FareShare

FareShare is a national organisation that works with businesses to minimise food waste.

By working alongside businesses FairShare looks for practical ways to prevent food being sent to landfill through redistribution. Food is redistributed through 250 organisations such as women's refuges, school breakfast clubs, hostels and day centres.

The scheme has provided various social benefits. Food collected by the scheme has contributed to 3.3 million meals in 34 cities across the UK. This food has been distributed to 12,000 disadvantaged people every day. The money saved by local agencies as a result of reducing the landfill burden is used to provide other services such as training, medical services and counselling for disadvantaged people to rebuild their lives.

Achievements:

 2,000 tonnes of food was prevented from going to landfill

 Business CO2 emissions were reduced by 13,000 as a result of the programme
