The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs’ Food Waste Reduction Fund, administrated by WRAP (The Waste and Resources Action Programme) invites expressions of interest from not-for-profit organisations helping to avoid surplus food produced by food businesses from becoming waste.
To be eligible, organisations applying will need to demonstrate they plan to work in partnership with food businesses such as retailers, manufacturers, wholesalers, food service and logistics companies. EOIs should propose a method of increasing quantities of surplus food redistributed that would otherwise not happen without this funding, for example by involving businesses who are new to redistribution, accessing more food from businesses who already redistribute some surpluses, making increased use of food logistics companies, or tackling a specific barrier.
Grants ranging in value from £20,000 to £75,000 will be awarded for new projects that can be piloted and evaluated and, if successful, can then be replicated and implemented more widely.
Deadline: Friday 30 March 2018. Shortlisted EOIs will be invited to submit their full application during the week commencing 16 April 2018. Full applications must be submitted by Friday 11 May 2018 for a decision during the week commencing 28 May 2018.
