EMERGE 3Rs (FareShare Greater Manchester)
Who we are
Help us fight food waste and food poverty.
EMERGE 3Rs runs FareShare Greater Manchester which fights hunger and tackles food waste by re-distributing surplus edible food to over 232 frontline charities, schools and community groups across the region. FareShare GM food reaches over 50,000 people each week.
FareShare also provides work experience and training for volunteers; helping people back on the road to employment. Many of our volunteers are from beneficiary organisations and have been long-term unemployed and/or are vulnerable adults themselves. In 2020, we distributed 2359 tonnes of food, which equated to nearly 5.5 million meal portions.
Our food is for people in need, or experiencing social isolation. We supply a broad range of charities and community groups, including: night shelters for rough sleepers, school breakfast clubs and holiday hunger projects, food banks that give out food parcels to those in crisis, day centres which cook meals for vulnerable people at risk of homelessness and chronic health conditions, food clubs for families where both parents work but their income is too low, and groups supporting disabled people.
£5 buys 50 Fareshare Meals, which prevents 21 kilos of food waste going into landfill and stops 84 kilos of CO2 damaging the environment.
Many thanks for your support.
