Travlaw have chosen as our Charity of 2024 Fareshare – the charity fighting hunger and tackling food waste in the UK. They save food from going to waste and redistribute it to people and groups in need.

Some of us went and helped out at the warehouse in Leeds in few weeks back, and it was genuinely an eye opening experience. The sheer volume of food that needs distributing and the amount of local community hubs, schools, churches and other groups that are distributing this food to the sheer volume of people who need it is frankly mindboggling.

Not just that, but Fareshare also offer a variety of work based learning opportunities and advice for people. All this with a primarily volunteer workforce! So it’s no surprise they need some help – and the beauty of supporting a cause like Fareshare is that it’s not just about raising money for them. They also (and maybe more importantly) could really use our time and our energy. Going forward we’ll be looking to book in more volunteer days at their warehouse and I would encourage you to go along and help out if you can – it’s a lot of lifting for sure, but it’s actually a really rewarding experience.

The money we raise will go towards Fareshare's FullCrumb Kitchen, which teaches charities how to use surplus food to maximise impact of disparate ingredients week on week, and also contributes towards supporting the logistics and storage so Fareshare can absorb more food to distribute to those in need.
