March 2020: 31,499 tonnes of food has now been redistributed using FoodCloud’s technology platform and redistribution network to charities and community groups across the UK and Ireland. This represents the equivalent of 100,798 tonnes of CO2 equivalent avoided. Putting this C02 figure into context, this would amount to the carbon emitted by almost 60,000 direct flights from London to New York ( USEPA* Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator)
FoodCloud cannot do what we do alone. It is thanks to the ongoing support of our community of food partners, funders, supporters, partners, volunteers, our staff and board and over 9,500 community groups that work with us everyday to help us achieve our mission of transforming surplus food into opportunity to make the world a kinder place.
