FareShare food deliveries

Fareham Community Church is now a member of  FareShare and able to deliver  good quality, in-date and nutritious food to local people in need.

This is Lourentia’s story of her first day distributing FareShare food.  If you would also like to get involved or know someone in need, please either contact Lourentia directly or email: fareham community church

“Last Wednesday evening I headed to Tesco and collected enough produce for 10 local families. The next day, my car loaded with food, I started my journey with the Lord. My route would take me to people located in Fareham and as far as Shedfield.  As I arrived at each house or flat, I opened my car boot and knocked on their door. They were then able to come and take whatever they needed from my car. Some people were on the brink of tears at being given the food totally free of charge.

“This week, I seemed to have a surplus of bread rolls; but I delivered to one lady who happened to work at a care home which was struggling to get supplies. So, I was really happy to be able to give them her all the remaining rolls.

“I felt so blessed (probably more so than the recipients) and all it took was my time and some petrol in the tank.”

Please either contact Lourentia directly or email Fareham Community Church if you would like to get involved or know someone in need. People can receive regular weekly help or have a one-off delivery.
