FareShare NW needs volunteers to help with Sainsbury’s Food drive

1 Jul 2011 - 09:40 by michelle.foster

FareShare NW is a charity which ensures ‘Good Food is Not Wasted’ by redistributing quality ‘surplus’ food from the food industry to community groups in Greater Manchester that support homeless and disadvantaged people.

On July 8th, 9th & 10th Sainsbury’s in Denton will be running ‘Make a Difference Days’ whereby customers will be asked to donate items such as tins, pasta and hot drinks to FareShare NW. The food collected will be redistributed amongst the charities and community groups that FareShare supports.

FareShare needs volunteers to ensure the food drive is successful.

Volunteers will stand near the exit with the Fareshare banner and publicity materials and talk to people about FareShare. Volunteers will help customers drop their donations in a trolley and empty it in the FareShare van whenever it is full.

Help is needed from 11:00 to 18:00 on Friday and Saturday and 11:00 to 16:00 on Sunday. Volunteers can do half day shifts or the whole day.

For further information and to volunteer, contact Nicola Milner, on 0161 223 8200, or email: volunteering@emergemanchester.co.uk.
