FoodCycle has received a generous donation of £32,000 from Tesco and Company Shop, the UK’s largest commercial redistributor of surplus food.

The donation will enable us to fund four of its Hubs for a year, providing 6,000 meals to those at risk from food poverty and stopping 8,000kg of good food from going to waste.

Our partners

FoodCycle has been working with both organisations for a number of years and this donation comes from Tesco and Company Shop’s charity fund, which forms part of a commercial agreement between the two organisations. Company Shop buys Tesco branded surplus food in order to redistribute it and prevent it from going to waste, then a percentage of the revenue raised by the onward sale of it is held for charitable purposes. Company Shop and Tesco decide together which good cause they would like the money to support, and FoodCycle is delighted to have been chosen on this occasion.

This support will help us to continue to support vulnerable and lonely people across the UK.
