FareShare Greater Manchester relies on the hard work of committed volunteers who work as a team to organise and distribute our food supplies. We work with the community to help the community. Our volunteers come from a wide range of backgrounds, many who have had to deal with the same kind of hardships faced by the people who our community partners provide food for.
