FareShare Glasgow and the West of Scotland

FareShare Glasgow & the West of Scotland supports charities and community groups by distributing donations of in-date surplus food, enabling them to feed thousands of vulnerable people each week.  

This vital provision is operated by MoveOn, a charity which supports hundreds of vulnerable people each year to gain essential skills and build resilience. 

A donation of £27,000 from the John Lewis Foundation will fund FareShare Glasgow & the West of Scotland's project to help 30 people gain practical skills, experience, and confidence that will transform their employability.  A combination of accredited 'on-the-job' essential training and functional skills, gained through the charity's programme, will enable these beneficiaries to overcome barriers and move into sustainable and meaningful work.
