WRAP Launches New Food Waste Grants

| Return|

Grants are available for businesses and not-for-profit organisations in England to support resource efficiency projects, with the goal of diverting, reducing and better managing waste, in the areas of food, plastics, textiles, recycling infrastructure and litter.

The Value from Food Waste scheme supports new projects that can demonstrate the commercial potential of biochemical processing options for high-volume challenging / hard-to-tackle streams of wasted food. These grants will fund both revenue and capital expenditure costs with project values of between £20,000 and £100,000.

The Citizen Food Waste Behaviour Change scheme will support projects that demonstrate new and proven citizen interventions that will encourage and influence citizens to reduce food waste. The aim is to support new, behaviour change interventions that encourage citizens to waste less food. This scheme will award grants of between £25,000 and £100,000 for both capital and revenue project expenditure.

Applications are accepted from small and medium-sized enterprises (both commercial and not-for-profit) that can supply surplus food (food providers, including commercial businesses, including manufacturers retailers etc) either directly to those in need, or to other organisations who do the same (food redistributors). Project activities must be based in England.

The deadline for applying to the Value from Food Waste scheme is 26 March 2020 and the deadline for applying to the Citizen Food Waste Behaviour Change scheme is 25 March 2020.

  • Value from Food Waste Grants: 26 March 2020
