Free Food UK

Help stop food poverty in UK

Today people across the UK will struggle to feed themselves and their families. Redundancy, illness, benefit delay and debt are just some of the reasons why people go hungry.

Where communities unite to make sure no good food is wasted. Our vision is to see a Freegive free food group in every UK town, creating a nation where no-one has to go hungry - can you help make that a reality?

Food waste is a major issue. We throw away 7.2 million tonnes of food and drink from our homes every year in the UK, the majority of which could have been eaten. It's costing us £12bn a year and is bad for the environment too. Today people across the UK will struggle to feed themselves and their families. Redundancy, illness, benefit delay, debt and paying for the additional costs of heating during winter are just some of the reasons why people go hungry. Freegive free food group connects people who are giving and getting food items for free in their own towns. Learn more

How free food group works

You have a tinned meat / fish or rice or milk or tea bags or tinned tomatoes or coffee or tinned vegetables or fruit juice or packet of pasta you were going to throw out.
You join your local free food group.
You post an offer on your local free food group.
People respond to you if they are interested.
You pick a recipient and arrange for them to collect the food item.
They take the food item away.
You let your local free food group know that the food item is no longer available by posting an item TAKEN message to the group.

If you need a food item you can request one on your local free food group in the same way by posting food WANTED message to the group and if someone has what you're looking for they will contact you to offer it.

Everyone and any organisation in the United Kingdom are welcome to join. It’s free to sign up, then post a message with an OFFER of food item you want to get rid of, or a WANTED message for food item you need. Our vision is to see a food free group in every United Kingdom town, creating a nation where no-one has to go hungry. Find out more.
