Total food saved
Equivalent meals provided
CO2 emissions saved
Data from 2014 – 2019. We use WRAP’s figure of the potential saving in emissions generated by using food that would otherwise go to waste versus the production of additional food. This does not take into account CO2 emissions generated if a vehicle used to deliver/collect the food donation.
You can help in many ways

If you work for/are a business that has surplus food to donate
If you are a charity that needs / redistributes food
If you can collect & deliver food or spread the word
If you have a vehicle and can help to transport food
