How we use your food- Once your food is received , it will be stored, sorted and distributed to charities in UK and the World.

The stock is packaged up with other categories of food from our food partners, to provide a mix of food to the charities we support, so they have all the component parts they need to cook nutritious meals for their beneficiaries.

Redistribution:

The food is delivered, with the help of our volunteer drivers, to different charities each day. Because we work with such a broad range of charities, there is always demand for a wide variety of products to meet the needs of their beneficiaries, so your food is sure to find a good home.

We ensure your food reaches good causes. We work with  charities and community groups across the country, including:

• Homeless hostels

• Domestic violence refuges

• Breakfast clubs for disadvantaged children

• Lunch clubs for older people

• Drug and alcohol misuse rehabilitation centres

• World Hunger charities

By receiving food from Hunger Angels Trust, these organisations are better able to provide nutritious meals for vulnerable people, alongside life-changing support services. The money our charity members save on their food bills can then be re-invested into essential support programmes to help their beneficiaries in the long term ,such as social and befriending services, leisure activities and benefits advice.

The surplus food we receive from the food industry provides a lifeline to disadvantaged people. Without their food provision, one in five charities say they would probably or definitely have to close, while 58% say they would have to reduce the amount of food they provide, and one in four would have to cut back other services.*

Food safety, full traceability and compliance is at the heart of our Hunger Angels Trust Programme.

We work with many food companies, from suppliers and manufacturers to retailers, to redistribute their surplus for social good.

Your food will be used by our charity members to feed vulnerable people across the country. The majority of the charities and community groups we work with will use your food to cook hot meals on-site. Only charity members with audited cooking facilities will receive chilled/frozen food.

The food products are not sold or exchanged in any way and only supplied to an authorised outlet within the Hunger Angels Trust compliance guidelines.

The Hunger Angels Trust  database provides full traceability of all products, from the time of receipt by Hunger Angels Trust  to the point of delivery at our charity members.

When signing up new charity members, Hunger Angels Trust checks each organisation to ensure they follow food safety law and are well equipped to handle, store and prepare the food. If the charities have to make adjustments, we work closely with them to support and advise them in addressing any issues and improving their processes, so that they can take Hunger Angels Trust food and therefore feed people in need.
