Fighting hunger | Tackling food waste

We’re taking part in The Big Give Christmas Challenge. For one week only, all donations towards our winter work will be matched by our generous match funders. Donate today.

Right now, 1 in 4 children across the South West are living in poverty. 

Together we can stop food from going to waste and get it where it should be – on people’s plates.
