Surplus to Supper bridges the gap between food waste and food poverty locally


Founded in 2017 in Sunbury-on-Thames, we have been active in sourcing and redistributing surplus food that would otherwise have gone to waste. This is on a substantial scale with the charity currently collecting and donating on average 10 tons of food per week and redistributing to foodbanks, schools, care homes, shelters, clubs, refuges, religious organisations and more. 


Surplus to Supper has been recognised by Fareshare as one of a few Community Food Redistribution Organisations. Unlike other food distribution centres, we do not charge anything for redistribution, we take the food directly to where it is needed. 


Surplus to Supper support needs in many boroughs across North Surrey and London; from Spelthorne to Richmond and Kingston to Chelsea and the reach is set to grow.
