Coronation Food Project launched to support communities in the UK
- Health and Wellbeing
- Social Inclusion
We were honoured to be joined by our Founder, King Charles III at our reception celebrating more than 40 years of impact on 12th July and delighted to launch the Coronation Food Project. This new initiative will work with farmers, supermarkets and organisations to ensure excess food is redistributed to support communities.
The Coronation Food Project seeks to tackle food waste and food insecurity across all four nations of the United Kingdom. The Project aims to rescue surplus food and redistribute it to those who need it most, whilst supporting local farmers and reducing carbon emissions. It will support a consortium of pioneering food-rescue charities across the United Kingdom who are leading the way in creating a fairer and more sustainable future for all – a future where no food goes to waste and nobody is left hungry.
The Coronation Food Project builds on the success of a previous initiative that His Majesty The King and many others supported in 2022 and early 2023 to extend the life of surplus food. Working with food redistribution charities such as The Felix Project, it distributed over 800 fridges and freezers to food banks and community organisations across the UK.
Our Chair of Trustees, Sir Ian Cheshire said: ‘The King has been a champion of the circular economy, farming communities and increasing our food security as a nation for many decades and is keen to support a step-change in this work over the coming years.’
The Coronation Food Project will partner with charities to help redistribute edible food and help increase food security for many communities.
