Welcome to Food AWARE

new foodaware vanFood AWARE is a ‘not for profit’ social enterprise set up to find ways of redistributing surplus food from potential waste to human consumption or other environmentally friendly means of reuse.

Please contact us at to discuss how we may be able to support or work in partnership with your group


We redistribute surplus food by diverting from potential waste and into needy communities. A key objective of our project is to redistribute healthy 5-a- day produce e.g. tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, fruit etc as this encourages healthier eating. We distribute Food Standards Agency (FSA) leaflets which educate beneficiaries and equip them to make good food choices e.g. Eat Well Plate, ‘Best Before’ vs ‘Use By’, Traffic Lights on foods, Salt in food etc.

We currently collect and redistribute over four tonnes of quality-control failing ’5-a-day’ produce every week in partnership with our local suppliers and farmers.

Food AWARE are proud to support the ‘Love Food Hate Waste’ campaign!! Check out recent photos (see below) of our support for the ‘Feed 1,000′ event at the LFHW Roadshow at Hull University!
