Our journey so far

Since April 2016, we have collected good surplus food from supermarkets, manufacturers and farms and shared it with local charities and community groups, saving them money so they can do more. Our community partners support the homeless, the old, the vulnerable and those on low incomes.

We also support community Foodshare Tables and Fridges where everyone is welcome to collect a few bags of food to help stop food waste and stretch household budgets.

How we make a big impact on the local community

We are a small charity from a small town making a big impact.

You can read more about our work in our latest Annual Report.

We save community groups money...

The Shrewsbury Ark reported that we saved them approx. 55% of their food budget. Freeing up budget means groups have more to spend on their core services.

In 2022/23 we rescued 217 tonnes of good food from the bin – that’s enough for 518,000 meals!

We couldn't do it without our volunteers

The good work we do wouldn’t be possible with our dedicated team of volunteers. Our 140+ strong team of amazing volunteers are supported by a small team of paid staff who keep us focused on achieving our mission.
