FareShare Yorkshire would not be able to carry out its work without the vital support of our funders. Some of our past and present funders are:
Asda has funded a mezzanine floor for office space, major chiller and freezer capacity and racking so that we can fulfil our ambition of doubling the number of projects we support by 2021. To learn more click here.
