gov.uk logo

Fund opens to substantially reduce food waste from food businesses.

Food redistribution organisations are being invited to apply for the first part of a £15million pilot scheme to reduce food waste. In this initial round, £5 million will be awarded to charities and not for profit groups with a two-year track record of collecting surplus food from food businesses and delivering it to those who have a need.

The aim is to help to overcome the financial barriers to redistribution that some organisations experience. Grants likely to range from £40,000 to £75,000 will cover distribution and administration costs. Offered by the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs

The closing date for applications is the 20th February 2019.
