  • Mission statement

    Our vision is that no good food should go to waste. Our charitable objectives are:
    (a) The relief of poverty and the preservation and promotion of good nutrition, good health and social improvement among people who are suffering from social, economic or emotional distress in such ways as the directors may in their absolute discretion think fit but particularly through:
    a. The collection and redistribution of surplus food; and
    b. The encouragement of members of the public to undertake voluntary work
    (b) The advancement of public education in particular but not exclusively by providing training in the voluntary sector
    (c) The furtherance, for the benefit of the public, of the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment through the reduction of waste (in particular food waste) and its adverse environmental impacts.
    Good food is donated by the food industry that would otherwise be sent to waste, landfill or anaerobic digestion.
    Charities receiving the food support homeless people, refugees, young people, old people, school children, people escaping domestic violence, recovering from addiction, prisoners wives and ex-offenders – anybody in need of good food.
    Volunteers come from all backgrounds but most are unemployed and many are referred to us with other problems. They get meaningful work experience, training and qualifications
