The Coronation Food Project will be made possible through the generous support of individuals, corporate partners and trusts and foundations. It is Co-Chaired by Baroness Casey of Blackstock, DBE CB and Dame Martina Milburn DCVO CBE.
We are very grateful to Dori Dana-Haeri for Chairing the Project’s Development Committee. Dori said ‘I was astonished by the scale of both food waste and food poverty in the UK, so I wanted to do something practical to help and I am delighted to be volunteering for the Coronation Food Project. If you share our mission to reduce food waste and feed more communities in need, we’d welcome you on board as a donor or partner.’
Frequently asked questions

The Project will support the whole sector through a grants programme. We’ll provide flexible grants and seed funding to inspire, empower and enable community groups to find new ways to support people most in need.
We hope to open for grant applications in the new year. If you think your charity or community group could benefit from a grant, please keep an eye on this page or follow us on social media to hear about forthcoming funding opportunities.
We will open applications to non-profit organisations 8th-22nd January 2024. Updates will be posted to this website and on our social media channels.
Our goal is to enhance the sector’s logistics capacity to redistribute more surplus food more effectively to more communities. Coronation Food Hubs are a big part of the solution.
We aim to create a network of major distribution centres across the UK, with initial hubs being planned for Glasgow, Liverpool, Northern Ireland & London. We hope that we will be able to establish more Coronation Food Hubs in other regions but this will be funding permitting. The locations of any subsequent hubs would be carefully considered based on an assessment of need.
The Coronation Food Project is inspired by His Majesty King Charles III, and was launched on his 75th birthday.
The King said in his message for the Big Issue ‘Food need is as real and urgent a problem as food waste – and if a way could be found to bridge the gap between them, then it would address two problems in one. To mark my 75th birthday in this Coronation year, it is my greatest hope that the Coronation Food Project will find practical ways to do just that.’
