Fareshare Driver Assistant

We have a Good Food Programme which is a social enterprise that supports people to move towards a more settled lifestyle through access to food and cooking skill development.
Part of the Good Food Programme includes FareShare: a national network redistributing surplus food from supermarkets and bakeries to organisations working with vulnerable people. We are the FareShare delivery partner for Central and South East Scotland.
Our depot has a small staff team and volunteers.
