Volunteers needed Sat April 28 to promote FareShare North West

Hmm, sorry about that – wordpress ate the post. It’s an email we’ve received from Fareshare North West, the regional branch of a national charity committed to supporting communities to combat food poverty and food waste.

Could you spare a few hours this weekend to promote FareShare North West at Love Food Fest?

Love Food Fest is a celebration of sustainable eating in Manchester. There will be free food and drinks and hands-on workshops on the themes of growing food, cooking cheap and healthy recipes and food composting. There will be tonnes of fun food games and best of all entry is completely free!

FareShare need volunteers to help us this Saturday 28th April from 10am onwards. We will be handing out information to the public to tell them about what FareShare does, encourage them to reduce their food waste and support us. You will get the chance to look around the festival yourself and enjoy the free food and drink on offer.

Venue:  Manchester Museum, The University of Manchester, Oxford Road
Time: 11am-3pm

Contact Nicola on 0161 223 8200 or email volunteering@emergemanchester.co.uk if you would like to volunteer.


a) We’ve not been asked to post this, and won’t be paid. Lucy Danger, who chaired our recent climate hustings, is doing a charity bike ride to raise money for FareShare, but this post won’t be replacing her impending guest post on the subject.

b) We may have gone drinking with Nicola Milner at some point.
