We continue a full national operation to get food to vulnerable people during the Covid-19 crisis.

#FoodOnPlates Campaign

Wasting good food should never be cheaper than feeding people

  • Right now, it’s cheaper for farmers to waste good-to-eat food than get it to frontline charities putting meals onto people’s plates.
  • ‘Lifeline’ government funding that helped farmers rescue their fresh, unsold food has been axed – with calls to renew it rejected.
  • Without this funding 53m meals worth of food a year will be needlessly wasted – thrown into biogas digesters, sent to landfill or simply ploughed back into the fields.
