What we tackle:
An estimated 400,000 tonnes of surplus food can be reclaimed each year from the food retailer industry to be made into healthy and nutritious meals.
There are 4 million people affected by food poverty in the UK. BAPEN estimates that malnutrition costs the NHS 13 billion pounds each and every year.
Over 2.4m people in the UK are currently searching for work, including almost 1m 16-25 yr olds. These people need opportunities to develop skills and affect their community positively.
The situation is dire, and here's what we're doing about it:
We empower local communities to set up groups of volunteers to collect surplus produce locally and prepare nutritious meals in unused professional kitchen spaces. These delicious meals are then served to those in need in the community.
