We make every meal as nutritious as possible because we know it may be the only meal of the day for the person who receives it. Both mental and physical health are compromised when people face food insecurity.
On average, a FareShare meal contains more than 65 per cent of the recommended daily intake of vegetables and more than 51 per cent of the recommended daily intake of protein.
Cooking with rescued food means that our chefs start the day with a mystery box of ingredients. Their goal is to transform this food into healthy, delicious casseroles, curries, soups and savoury pastries.
We understand that tastes and preferences vary so we cook a wide variety of both meat-based and vegetarian dishes. We add legumes and pulses – good sources of protein – to our vegetarian meals.
