What we do

We are the Superheroes for Surplus Food 

UKHarvest is a not-for-profit perishable food rescue operation that collects quality excess food from commercial outlets and delivers it, direct and free of charge, to charities.

We provide much needed assistance to vulnerable people, collecting surplus food from all types of food providers, including fruit and vegetable markets, supermarkets, hotels, wholesalers, farmers, stadiums, corporate events, catering companies, shopping centres, delis, cafes, restaurants, film and TV shoots and boardrooms.

The work we do has a four-fold impact

  Quality food for charities 

Our food deliveries to charitable organisations enable them to provide a broad range of high-quality food that was not available previously.

  Savings for charities 

Our food deliveries to charitable organisations enable them to redirect vital funding into education, rehabilitation and other programs, which directly benefit their clients.

 Helping the environment

By ensuring that good food is being eaten rather than going to landfill UKHarvest is minimising food waste and saving our environment by preventing tonnes of carbon emissions from polluting the atmosphere.

 Savings for food donors 

Our food donors benefit from reduced expenditure associated with the disposal of excess food, reduced food storage costs and the satisfaction of knowing they are making a valuable contribution to those in need in the local community
