Food production businesses in England with surplus food can apply for up to £50,000 worth of funding to help them reduce their food waste.
Fareshare’s Surplus with Purpose Fund aims to offset the additional costs faced by companies seeking to redistribute their edible surplus food to frontline charities and community organisations who can use it to create meals for their service users. Funding can 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 food.
Applications can be submitted at any time.
