FareShare is the UK’s leading food redistribution charity, fighting hunger and food waste by redistributing good food that would otherwise go to waste, to frontline charities and community groups that support vulnerable people - including homeless hostels, children’s breakfast clubs and lunch clubs for older people. These organisations transform the food into nutritious meals that they serve up alongside life-changing support.
By ensuring no good food goes to waste, FareShare turn an environmental problem into a social solution. Last year, over 6,700 frontline charities and community groups received 13,500 tonnes of food through FareShare, enough to provide 28.6 million meals for people in need.

Lindsay Boswell, FareShare, CEO “We are delighted to be named as charity partner for the European Pizza & Pasta Show. This partnership is valuable for us in two ways. Firstly, food that becomes surplus at the end of the show will be made available to FareShare, so that we can redistribute it to local charities. Additionally, we will benefit from exposure to food businesses that both exhibit and attend the show, helping to spread the word about the work we do to tackle food waste and hunger to key audiences.”
