Gareth has been FareShare Yorkshire’s Chief Executive since 2013 and working with the Board of Trustees has the overall responsibility for the leadership, management and strategic direction of the charity. Gareth is excited about the growth plans for the charity over the coming months and years to ensure that FareShare Yorkshire plays a major part in tackling Food Insecurity issues and ensuring everyone has access to the food they deserve.
The vast majority of surplus occurs before food even gets to the supermarket. Each FareShare regional centre takes that food and redistributes to those in need. FareShare Go is our supermarket collection service, which deals with supermarket-level surplus.
