Grants of between £25,000 and £100,000 are available to small and medium sized enterprises, not-for-profit organisations and public funded authorities for projects that change people’s behaviours with regards to food waste. The funding is being made available by the waste prevention charity WRAP.
WRAP are looking to support interventions that will specifically focus on two behaviours:
- Buy what you eat (BWYE), and;
- Eat what you buy (EWYB).
Examples could be interventions that:
- Help promote a better understanding of Best Before Date vs Use-By Date
- Promote and encourage consumers to buy/shop better – buying the ‘right’ quantity for what is required. For example, shopping planners
- Educate citizens on how to store or freeze food correctly
Funding can be for both capital and revenue expenditure.
There is a two-stage application process and the closing date for stage 1 applications is 1pm on the 25th March 2020.
