The aim of the grant is to provide vital financial support to small not-for-profit (NFP) organisations who can redistribute surplus food from the likes of retailers, wholesalers, and food manufacturers, to people in need or those considered vulnerable.
This £1 million grant scheme is open to micro-to-small sized NFP operations that currently operate food redistribution activity. Eligible applicants may apply for grants of between £5,000 and £10,000. The grant may be used to fund the eligible capital and revenue costs.
The grant can provide funding support to help deal with any increased demand and capacity issues, additional resource, or costs for transporting the surplus food from the food business to a charity or end beneficiary. We are unable to fund the likes of kitchens facilities for meal preparations, cooking, or onward giving of food through the likes of community stores, breakfast clubs, and soup kitchens.
