feed people first

1 in 8 people go hungry in the UK, yet perfectly good food is wasted every day in food production. 

This is because it can be more expensive to redistribute good quality surplus food to the charities which support the 8.4 million people in the UK who go hungry than it is to send it to other processes of disposal.

Help us tell the Government to get food to those in need.

We are asking the Government to offset the costs of charitable food redistribution which could include re-packing, harvesting, transporting, storage and handling, so that 100,000 tonnes of good food could be used for people in need.
