It's 2016, and we need a new look, and in particular a new website! It's that time of year, where changes are made, and ambitions set for the future. Please join us in helping us achieve our goal, and helping us bring an end to industry food waste. 

Who are we, and are we really rubbish? No, not really, but we do work with a lot of rubbish! We started as a group of friends really concerned and schocked by the amount of food being wasted by supermarkets. After launching at the first Feeding the 5000 event, our organisation developed rapidly. We do a lot of things to reduce industry food waste, but our main aim is to reduce industry level food waste in the UK, through policy change, education, the arts and public events.

We operate across two main areas; campaigning for supply chain policy change and an outreach education program. We use different methods of engagement and we have succesfully run creative and arts based events, participatory workshops and stunts.

To start this year with a bang, we are trying to raise money to revamp our website which we started in 2009 when we were a fledgling organisation using a wordpress template. The website is now corrupting, vulnerable to hackers – as we unfortunately discovered - and needs a vital overhaul. Donations of any amount would be greatly appreciated to help us reach our target.

As you can imagine, a functioning website is vital for an organisation to grow and so we hope you will help us meet (or exceed our target). Your generosity will be rewarded with the following unbelievable prizes, depending on how much you pledge. Hurry – limited stocks available, and we are sure lots of people will want the holiday in a skip!
