Supporting FareShare Via A Supplier Based Programme

Some Major Retailers will be provided Access to the information and products of Suppliers, to help to support FareShare, the UK's largest hunger fighting charity. When ESN Suppliers supply these Retailers, a donation will be made by those suppliers as a percentage of transactions, to FareShare. Suppliers can supply their Product information by using This Form. Suppliers can then be contacted Directly by interested Buyers.

The event will be attended with by a FareShare Representative who works with ambient manufacturers in the food team at FareShare, and who can relay any specific questions back to the retail team.

Support via a Local Web Programme

Over 130 web sites for Towns and Cities across the UK will be supporting Food Banks via a local web Programme as detailed below. Some of the Local Websites will be dedicated to supporting Fare Share by Featuring EthicallySourced.Shop. However, most of the local web sites will be supporting Local Trussell Trust web sites.

Under this Programme, Local Retailers who are supplied by participating Suppliers, can help to support the Trussell Trust and Trussell Trust Food Banks. When those Suppliers supply featured Retailers on the Local Site, a donation will be made as a percentage of transactions, to the Local Food Bank supported by the site.
