The story so far...

We've helped to redistribute over 1.4 million meals of surplus food to people in need across the UK

Don’t let it go to waste

Food donation is an act of neighbourliness. Neighbourly puts local stores that have surplus in direct contact with the charities and projects that can get the food to people who need it. We do this at scale, creating more connections for more people in more communities, more easily.

Click on the register button above and create a neighbourly account. Then create a project page, edit it to request food donations and upload a copy of a suitable food hygiene certificate. Neighbourly will attempt to match you with a local participating retailer, subject to availability.
This ensures that food is being handled and redistributed safely as many of the items will be fresh. Certificates should be uploaded to your project page.
Neighbourly technology is helping to divert thousands of tonnes of edible food away from waste and into the hands of those who need it. We also connect causes with financial donations and volunteer time.
Certificates are easy to obtain and don’t take long to complete. Your local council can advise on the types of courses available or you can have a look at online courses – search for ‘Food hygiene certificate level 2’.
If your business has surplus edible food, we’d love to talk to you about redistribution. Get in touch via food@neighbourly.com.
