FOOD WORKS

We are a social enterprise collecting food destined for landfill and making it available to the people of Sheffield. It is our priority to provide our city with affordbale access to food throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last year we saved 284 tonnes of edible food from being wasted, the equivalent of a million meals. We work with hundreds of active volunteers to collect, sort, weigh, prepare and cook surplus food. 

With the disruptions and closures resulting from the pandemic, Sheffield’s food waste is on the rise. We are working with retailers, manufacturers, cafes, restaurants and caterers to put their surplus food to good use. Making sure we keep everyone fed and healthy is more important than ever. 

 

 

If you have surplus food that you cannot make use of, find out more here and get in touch. 

 

We exist for the whole community and anyone can access our services. We are asking the public to come and collect both grocery boxes and home cooked meals from our Sharehouse, and encouraging our Sheffield community to use this opportunity to support those most in need.

 

SURPLUS FOOD BOXES

We are offering pre-packed boxes for collection 7 days a week, ensuring everyone is able to take home a fair share of the food we receive.

During this difficult time we are allowing each customer to collect an extra box for a friend or family member if they can no longer attend the Sharehouse for health reasons.

We ask for £1 and a ‘pay as you feel’ donation to keep our operation running.

 

COOKED MEALS SERVICE

Throughout the crisis, we are offering cooked meals for collection from our Sharehouse. You can find out more information and register for meals here.

All meals are ‘pay as you feel’.
