UKHarvest

738599 x250

UKHarvest
is a Chichester based charity, which rescues excess perishable food, from
commercial outlets, food distribution centres and farms, to deliver it, direct
and free of charge to charities, which support vulnerable people. Our mission
is to ‘Nourish our Nation’: eliminating hunger and food waste through the
redistribution of good food, educating, engaging with communities and inspiring
innovation.

Since our
inception in 2017, UKHarvest has rescued
760 tonnes of food from going into
landfill and delivered over 2
million meals. 2019 has been an exceptionally busy year. Due to generous help
from our donors, we have been able to increase our partnerships with local
charities, supporting more vulnerable groups, who help those who battle hunger
and poverty every day. In 2019, the number of recipients we deliver to has
increased from 85 to 112. We
are currently delivering 30,000 meals each week to those who are food
insecure.

We work
with a broad range of people within the community ranging from young carers and
young people in care to school children and young people still in education,
such as university students. Our programmes support families on low incomes,
homeless people in hostel accommodation: anyone who needs support and guidance
on how to make the most of the nutritional value of the food they
purchase. Our focus is to reduce food
waste, especially for those families on low incomes.

Education
is really at the core of what we do: in order to make a real change education
is the catalyst in spurring key behaviour changes, which will prevent food
waste and help people nourish themselves. UKHarvest’s NourishEd Learning
programmes provide a focus on food literacy, supporting individuals, families
and communities to live well, to age well and to help to combat social
isolation. We help local community groups to come together and share their
cultures, problem solve and nourish their lives. Our specialist courses are
adaptable for a range of all ages, abilities and dietary needs.
