Best Before Project

Description

We are a volunteer-based organisation helping to prevent unnecessary food wastage generated by the food industry. We run educational campaigns on date labelling on food, encouraging food businesses to either sell or donate food approaching or past 'best before' date. We connect food businesses with surplus food with local charities and community groups. We help to arrange logistics and in the case of larger quantities of food we arrange a pick-up and re-distribute the food via one of our local storages across London.
