Fareshare's Mobile Food Larder
The Food Larder is a community larder run by volunteers for the benefit of their local community. It is a membership scheme aimed at helping people make their money go further by reducing food shopping bills (members can make a considerable saving each year).
A bag will be prepared in advance, and the Food Larder strives to offer a variety of products which can top up their cupboards and fridge. It is estimated that the “bag” will hold an average of £10-£15 worth of products (dependent on household size). A typical bag can include some of these items: Pasta, rice, coffee, tea bags, tinned meats, tinned fish, tinned desserts, soups.
The Food Larder van is in regular locations, at the same day and time each week. A Fareshare Van will arrive at the location and volunteers will serve customers on a first come, first served basis.
