Covid-19 emergency surplus food grant

Delivered by Wrap


Only Phase 2 is open for applications funding opportunities are only open for small surplus food redistributor

Food redistribution organisations across England will benefit from £3.25 million of government funding to help them cut food waste and redistribute up to 14,000 tonnes of surplus stock during the coronavirus outbreak.

The aim of the grant is to assist surplus food redistributors in overcoming challenges that they are currently facing in obtaining surplus food from food businesses (such as retailers and food manufacturers) and distributing this to people in need or those considered vulnerable. The grant can be used to fund both capital and revenue costs associated with redistribution activities such as:

  • access to surplus food through logistical collections;
  • sorting, storing, freezing, labelling / repackaging food; and
  • onward distribution of food to charities or end beneficiaries.
