Profile

Urban have identified that there is a supply chain breakdown between supermarket and foodbank/donation centres. This breakdown relates to the surplus/donated food itself. By way of explanation, our experience has shown that foodbanks lack experience and/or amenities with which to turn the donated food into edible nutritional meals. Added to which many foodbank users are already experiencing fuel poverty and may lack basic cooking facilities at home. Our solution is to divert the surplus/donated food from supermarkets to us in order to collate, prepare, store and turn the food into affordable meals. At this point, we either redistribute the meals back to the foodbanks, or use our facility for people to dine in or take away the food, in future, Covid willing.
