Volunteer drivers needed for FareShare at its new warehouse in Guildford


Surplus food charity FareShare Sussex & Surrey is looking for volunteer drivers to help get surplus food to charities and community groups across the area from its new warehouse in Guildford.


Volunteer drivers are needed by FareShare at its new warehouse in Guildford.

Gemma Bradshaw, operations and volunteer co-ordinator, said: “Volunteers are the beating heart of our organisation ensuring we can provide surplus food to charities across the region. You don’t need any specific experience just a driving licence and ability to get to our Guildford warehouse.”


Jo Alex, who is a driver at FareShare’s Brighton warehouse, added: “I have now been driving for FareShare for a number of years, driving a few times a week in both the electric and diesel vans, delivering food all across Sussex. I get to meet some of the incredible charities we deliver to and have met some lovely people who I volunteer alongside. The staff are also fabulous, always making you feel valued.”

"Volunteers are the beating heart of our organisation ensuring we can provide surplus food to charities across the region."

About FareShare: Fighting Hunger, tackling food waste, creating opportunities

We rescue surplus food from businesses, supermarkets and farms. This food is nutritious, in date, and safe and includes a high proportion of fresh vegetables, fruit, meat and fish. If we did not rescue this food, it would be at risk of going to waste. Instead, we deliver it to charities, schools, food banks, community pantries and fridges and other organisations serving vulnerable people.

Our new warehouse in Guildford will provide us with increased capacity for frozen and chilled food. By opening this warehouse, we aim to increase the amount of food we can save and eventually increase the number of charities and community groups we can work with in Surrey.

Our food is a vital lifeline for vulnerable people in our community. Children and families, people on low incomes, people who have lost their jobs, the homeless, refugees, domestic abuse survivors, the elderly and key workers all rely on our food.
