Supporters

Philanthropic

FareShare has been built on the generosity of philanthropic support.

Grants from philanthropic foundations and trusts provided the seed funding to establish FareShare, invested in our first and then second kitchens and contribute towards our operating costs.

Today, key supporters such as Gandel Philanthropy (founders Pauline and John Gandel pictured, right, with FareShare CEO Marcus Godinho) continue to underpin FareShare’s operations by providing us with a range of one-off grants.

Because FareShare doesn’t receive any ongoing Government funding, this kind of support is our lifeblood.

Business

Each year staff from nearly 100 businesses volunteer in FareShare’s kitchen.

Some companies will do one shift and others will have more than 100 employees help. Volunteering in the kitchen is a popular team building and corporate social activity, but there are many other ways the businesses contribute FareShare.

Companies supply food, provide pro bono goods and services and importantly donate. For many businesses they don’t support FareShare, they are a part of FareShare.
