Reducing food waste by supplying surplus food to those in need​

Peterborough-based charity Food for Nought delivers surplus food from local farmers and supermarkets to food banks and community fridges. Our activities not only help tackle food poverty but also have a positive environmental impact by redirecting food from landfill.
