We're a UK organisation that delivers food to food banks - using technology to supply, in bulk, the food required in a timely manner.
We've delivered 35.3 tonnes of food, consisting of 86,811 items and 29.0 million calories, to 90 food banks around the country.
We automatically monitor food bank shopping lists & social media to identify what a location needs.
An order is created when a need is published. This usually happens within an hour or two, but our record is just six minutes! The delivery is made anywhere between 12 hours and a week later.
We get feedback to make sure we've ordered the correct items for delivery at the right time to the best location.
We find that items like baked beans, tinned spaghetti and dried pasta are often well provisioned at food banks already.
As such, we focus on delivering tinned and heavy food like tomatoes, vegetables, meat, fish, fruit, custard, and rice pudding plus UHT milk. Occasionally we'll also supply hygiene products like shower gel, deodorant and shampoo.
We only deliver items suitable for storage on a shelf for extended periods.
We currently supply 90 food banks across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland of varying sizes. Some are members of networks and some are independent.
