“Food is the essence of everything. Its about caring, sharing and building people up.”

We support people to access food - and allow them to make the most of it
Our Good Food Programme is a social enterprise that supports people through access to food, improves their health and wellbeing, and develops skills and confidence around cooking. This in turn allows them to move towards a more settled lifestyle.
There are three key elements:
- FareShare is a national network redistributing surplus food from producers and suppliers (like supermarkets and bakeries) to organisations working with vulnerable people (such as residential homeless projects and community youth groups). Programme members can make significant savings on their food bills.

- Our Food Education programme provides classes with 'hands on' activities that encourage healthy eating and promote social inclusion.

- Volunteers from all walks of life participate in the programme. We have opportunities to support homeless and socially excluded people, and many of our volunteers have, or have had, personal experience of this. This is a critical and unique part of the programme that enables those who have received support to give something back to others.
