Redistributing Surplus Food Locally, Sustainably, and Affordably
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
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.
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.
