Anyone can get involved in supporting our work!

Food waste and hunger affect more than one million people living in the East Midlands – and anyone can get involved in supporting our work by raising money. 

Here's some simple ideas that can help you turn your ambitions into reality and really give a boost to your community...

General Fundraising Ideas

If you are a school teacher, a learning support assistant, parent or pupil, there are many ways for you to mobilise the school population, have some fun – and help to raise vital funds for FareShare East Midlands. Here are just a few tasters.

Take on a challenge

Whether running, swimming or cycling is your thing, taking on a challenge can boost your fitness, improve mental health and give you a goal to work towards. Fundraising for FareShare can have an incredible impact as every £1 = 4 meals! If you have your own place in a event we’d love to hear from you, we can share our top tips to maximise your fundraising.

Organise an event

Throw a bash to raise some cash. Whatever you’re into, there are plenty of ways to get some friends together and raise some money to support our work. Be creative – host a ‘food waste’ themed dinner party, a cocktail evening, or a summer picnic, or you can host a quiz for those with a competitive streak, a bake sale or a sports tournament!

Give it up!

Whether it’s alcohol, chocolate, coffee or crisps – the savings you can make on giving up your ‘treats’ for a month or two can really add up. The price of a medium latte can provide up to 10 meals for vulnerable and hungry people in the UK. Try giving it up for FareShare and donating the money you save to fight hunger and food waste.

School Fundraising Ideas

We have lots of ideas and suggestions to help you fundraise for FareShare: from simple ideas to involving your friends or colleagues, through to more adventurous activities & challenges such as swimming, running or cycling.

Non-uniform day

Tried, tested and loved by pupils everywhere – try a non-uniform day with pupils paying £1 for the privilege of wearing their own togs for the day. Why not make teachers dress in uniform to really switch things around!

Harvest festival

Instead of collecting tins, hold an assembly about how much good food from every harvest goes to waste, while millions of people in the UK go hungry. If every child brings £1 to donate to FareShare, they can provide 4 meals for people in need.

School disco

Whether it’s alcohol, chocolate, coffee or crisps – the savings you can make on giving up your ‘treats’ for a month or two can really add up. The price of a medium latte can provide up to 10 meals for vulnerable and hungry people in the UK. Try giving it up for FareShare and donating the money you save to fight hunger and food waste.

These are just some of the ways you can help us. And every penny donated to FareShare East Midlands will be used to fight food hunger and tackle food waste.
