Grants for food businesses that are seeking to redistribute surplus food to charities and community groups helping vulnerable people
Applications may be submitted at any time
FareShare, a UK food redistribution charity, has launched a new £3m fund, the FareShare Surplus with Purpose Fund. It is aimed at offsetting the additional costs faced by companies seeking to redistribute their edible surplus food to charities and community groups. It can also be used to unlock harder to reach surplus food, or surplus food that’s further up the supply chain.
Food businesses with surplus food can apply for up to £50,000 worth of funding. This could be used to cover the additional staff costs needed for packing and sorting edible surplus food, or in building, implementing and managing new processes. It could also cover packaging and transportation costs, or lost income from the sale of surplus to animal feed or anaerobic digestion.
