In the UK, food businesses throw away an estimated 3 million tonnes of food per year. At the same time, an estimated 8.4 million people struggle with food insecurity. During this half-day challenge, help inspire food businesses to donate their surplus food to organizations feeding people in need instead of sending it to the landfill. Alongside a team of 2-4 people, you’ll have 2 hours to contact or visit as many food businesses as possible. Document your “Great Surplus Food Hunt” with photos, videos, and social media posts. Points will be awarded for successes great and small!
The activity will start at your company's premises.
To inspire and facilitate connections between food businesses and local charities and to simplify the process of donating surplus food to those living in food poverty.
