What We Do

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.

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 20,838 tonnes of food.

Go to: Giving Food

Across the UK...

We reach 1,960 towns and cities through our 22 Regional Centres, which can be found from Aberdeen to Brighton.

Go to: Where We Are

To frontline charities and community groups...

10,943 of them including homeless hostels, childrens breakfast clubs, lunch clubs for older people, domestic violence refuges and community cafés.

Go to: Getting Food

Which turn it into meals for vulnerable people...

Last year we redistributed enough food for 46.5 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.

A global movement

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.
