FareShare is a national charity which receives surplus food from the UK food industry and distributes it to a network of more than 900 charities, called member charities. Unlike foodbanks, food is cooked and eaten on the premises of local charities rather than taken home. This research aimed to explore whether FareShare caters for those most in need of help and to examine the experiences of people who use Fareshare's services. Results showed that FareShare improved the variety and healthiness of food their member charities are able to offer. Beneficiaries at member charities valued the variety of food coming from FareShare, having a mix of healthy options and treats, sweets, steaks or even occasional luxury products such as lobster.
