Food appeal helps feed local children and families in need

A huge thank you to our customers, retailers and staff who have given so generously to our FareShare Greater Manchester food appeal.

Ahead of October half-term, we knew straight away that we wanted to get behind FareShare and Marcus Rashford’s campaign to help feed thousands more vulnerable children and families across our region.

FareShare volunteers have been manning the deck of The Orient food court, collecting non-perishable food items from generous customers, retailers and staff – with an amazing response and a huge amount collected!

These were then distributed to food banks, community groups, activity schemes and schools, supporting families across Greater Manchester.

FareShare distributed nearly 1,000 tonnes of food to those who need it most.

It’s because of this remarkable community spirit we can help make a real difference to those who need it the most.

During lockdown, in Greater Manchester alone, FareShare distributed nearly 1,000 tonnes of food to those who need it most.

The charity recently gave Marcus Rashford and his mum Melanie Maynard a tour of their new warehouse in Manchester which has been taken on to respond to Covid-19. The new facility will be named after Melanie, in honour of the work Marcus has done to raise awareness of food poverty in the UK.

A big thank you to you all!
