COVID-19 Emergency Surplus Food Grant – Phase 2 (England)

The UK Government in collaboration with the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) has launched phase 2 of its Emergency Surplus Food Grant. The aim of the £1 million grant scheme is to provide support to small and micro-sized not-for-profit food redistributors who can redistribute surplus food from retailers, wholesalers and food manufacturers to vulnerable people and those in need who are affected by the coronavirus. Grants of between £5,000 and £10,000 are available to help with capital and revenue costs such as costs for transporting the surplus food or any increased demand and capacity issues. The deadline for applications is 1pm on the 4th June 2020 but may close early if the budget is fully allocated. Click here
