Thanking FareShare Food Heroes

We’ve been blown away by the hard work of FareShare and its army of dedicated volunteers, so we’ve donated 18,000 Lyons coffee bags to help keep them going as they feed the nation’s most vulnerable.

The UK’s largest charity fighting hunger and food waste has been doing a phenomenal job getting food to vulnerable people during the Covid‐19 crisis. And it’s a mammoth task…

Demand for FareShare’s vital services has never been so high, with applications for help tripling in recent weeks and 500 new charities signing up to receive support. They’ve stepped up their emergency response to meet this demand; swiftly opening eight new warehouses and delivering 90% more food than normal to over 11,000 frontline charities and community groups across the UK.

Behind the scenes, there’s hundreds of amazing volunteers ‐ working seven days a week in 24 regional warehouses to keep FareShare moving.

To thank the volunteers for their incredible contribution and give them a well‐deserved pick‐me‐up, we’ve delivered 18,000 Lyons coffee bags to FareShare warehouses across the country ‐ helping to put a smile on the volunteers’ faces with a much‐needed caffeine kick.
