Redistributing Surplus Food Locally, Sustainably, and Affordably

What is Foodprint?

Food waste and food poverty shouldn't coexist. We tackle this imbalance directly, redirecting food that is perfectly fit for consumption but would otherwise go to waste. We are a social enterprise started by students at the University of Nottingham, acting as an intermediary between supermarkets, wholesalers, charities and the people of Nottingham. We also sell surplus food from partners at a greatly reduced price through our low cost 'social supermarket' located in Sneinton.

our Goals

Reduce Food Waste

The UK throws away enough food to fill the Royal Albert Hall every single day, 60% of which is still fit for human consumption. This equates to 6 million tonnes of edible food per year.

Encourage Healthy Eating

Fruit and vegetables are often the most expensive food products, leaving those most in need with limited access and, in turn, relatively unbalanced diets.

Combat Food Poverty

A third of children in Nottingham live below the food poverty line. With increasing dependence on food banks, breakfast clubs, and social eating hubs, this problem is clearly a growing one.

We are looking for volunteer
store managers!

Do you have free time on your hands or just looking to help a good cause? Why not sign up to volunteer in our store – we need all the help we can get!

We are looking to collect food...

Are you a business with surplus food and nowhere to take it? Donate this food to Foodprint and help reduce food waste and food poverty in Nottingham.

our Solutions


We collect from numerous partners all over the city, intercepting perfectly edible food before it is tossed into landfill. We even collect surplus food from the partners we deliver to when they can’t use it themselves. 


We weigh and sort the collections at our shop and redistribute it for free to those who need it most. The surplus that can’t be redistributed to food banks, community eating projects, or schools stays with us.


We sell the remaining surplus food in Nottingham’s first social supermarket as cheaply as is sustainably possible, subsidising fruit and vegetables in particular to make healthy eating as affordable as possible.

  • #Regram #RG - This Swedish teenager stood up to a crowd of global leaders at a United Nations summit on climate change in Poland on Wednesday. "You are not mature enough to tell it like is. Even that burden you leave to us children," 15-year-old Greta Thunberg said, scolding the crowd of negotiators at the COP24 meeting for not doing enough to fight climate change. After two weeks of negotiations, nearly 200 nations agreed on a set of rules meant to help curb global warming, but scientists and even the negotiators themselves say the moves won't be enough to stop carbon pollution from reaching critical levels.

According to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization, 30 percent of food is wasted globally across the supply chain, contributing 8 percent of total global greenhouse gas emissions. We at Foodprint work our hardest to reduce food waste in Nottingham, tackling food poverty but also helping flight climate change ♻️ #foodprintnotts #enactusnottingham #nottingham
