We believe that no good food should go to waste We redistribute surplus food to charities that turn it into meals. We are doers. We are a community. We change lives. Here’s how we do it.
We redistribute surplus food... Fresh in date and good to eat surplus from the food industry, which would otherwise go to waste. Last year we managed 16,992 tonnes of food. We reach 1,500 towns and cities through our 21 Regional Centres, which can be found from Aberdeen to Brighton. 9,653 of them including homeless hostels, childrens breakfast clubs, lunch clubs for older people, domestic violence refuges and community cafés. Last year we redistributed enough food for 36.7 million meals. But it’s about more than meals. The organisations we supply food to are places that provide life changing support, as well as lunch and dinner. As a member of both the European Federation of Food Banks and The Global FoodBanking Network, we are part of a global movement working to alleviate hunger by capturing surplus food and delivering it to the people who need it.
