Our Response

The Amir Khan Foundation has partnered with Fareshare – the UK’s largest food distribution charity – to actively fight hunger and food waste.

Good food should not go to waste, especially when there are millions without adequate food supplies. Through our partnership with Fareshare, we redistribute surplus food to charities, which then become meals for those in need.

On a weekly basis, our partnership with Fareshare is supporting almost 1 million people. Through Fareshare’s 22 regional centres and 11,000 frontline organisations, which are spread across 1,900 towns and cities across the UK, we can ensure that no family is left without food.

This Ramadan, support our essential work with Fareshare by dedicating your zakat to food poverty: 0.25p provides a single meal. Help us eradicate food poverty for all.
