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

Wasting good food should never be cheaper than feeding people

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.

Take action now. Ask your MP to help reinstate funding to rescue fresh food and get it onto people’s plates
