What is food waste & surplus food?
Did you know, every day in the UK perfectly healthy, edible and wholesome food is thrown away. This food wastage has nothing to do with taste, texture, ingredients or date of expiry. This is pure because supermarkets don’t have the mechanisms in which they can distribute this surplus food.
U4H Determined to Reduce Food Wastage
Since 2012, U4H’s has been distributing surplus food amongst the poor, needy, homeless and families with low income in the UK. We provide vitally-needed meals, food parcels and snacks to hundreds of disadvantaged people every day.
Our surplus food distribution project gives us chance to work with a huge variety of people dealing with hardship, people who are homeless, unemployed, people dealing with substance abuse, the elderly, children, young adults, refugees and asylum-seekers at drop-ins, residential centres, children’s centres, and breakfast and after-school clubs.
