Why FoodSHare?

Food waste occurs across the food system from the farm, post-harvest, processing, transporting, to wholesaling, retailing and the consumers. Growing media attention, in recent years, about environmental and economic costs, hunger and resource conservation associated with food waste has raised public awareness about food loss. This has in turn accelerated public and private efforts to make better use of available food supplies by recovering safe and nutritious food that would otherwise be wasted.

Diverting surplus food to provide meals for people in need

Preventing food from being thrown away is socially important when the rescued food is redirected to those who are food insecure.

Simpler, more efficient, less wasteful business

Redistributing surplus food has great economic impact as it substantially reduces food disposal costs and increases efficiency.

Fighting food waste means fighting climate change

Reducing food waste is environmentally important as it keeps food out of landfills and mitigates greenhouse gas emissions.

Giving food another chance: be part of the solution

At FoodSHare we save good quality, surplus food from going to waste. If you find that you have surplus food which is still edible, consider redistributing it to people in need. If your organisation serves those who are food insecure, then sign up to collect food.
