FareShare's Surplus with Purpose is a £3 million Fund that provides funding of up to £50,000 to food businesses in the UK to offset the costs of sending good quality surplus food to good causes, helping the people most in need.
The fund is open to companies seeking to unlock new or hard to reach surplus (or ‘waste’) food, as well as those that haven’t previously worked with FareShare. A wide range of types of food are eligible for support (see FareShare website)
The funding can be used to cover:
- Additional staff costs needed for packing and sorting edible surplus food
- Building, implementing and managing new processes.
- Packaging and transportation costs,
- Lost income from the sale of surplus to animal feed or anaerobic digestion.
Funding applications can be submitted at any time.
