Routing your surplus food to people, not landfill

blog-post-collage food routes 1neighbourly.com are pleased to invite organisations to join ‘Food Route’ – a collaborative project between FareShare South West, Incredible Edible Bristol and neighbourly.com to ensure edible food goes to people, not landfill.

This online network of food suppliers – from retail, manufacturing, distribution and growing sectors – make communities aware of surplus food and redistribute it to where it is needed. Companies simply upload details of surplus food items to neighbourly.com. This notifies charities and community groups about items of interest which they can collect, free of charge. If the food is suitable for composting or growing projects then these groups will also be alerted.

We believe this a really exciting programme and would like as many food donators and receivers to be involved in this pilot as possible. Please contact foodroute@neighbourly.com by 6th March if you are interested in participating.

“We can’t promise to solve the food waste issue over night but if we can begin to reroute food to those in need whilst be aware of and working with industry partners who are also working to alleviate food waste, we hope between us all that we can make a difference.” Sara Venn, Incredible Edible
