Feedback is an environmental organisation that campaigns to end food waste at every level of the food system. We catalyse action on eliminating food waste globally, working with governments, international institutions, businesses, NGOs, grassroots organisations and the public to change society’s attitude toward wasting food.
Our campaigns have expanded since 2009 and are now under five banners: Feeding the 5000, Gleaning Network, The Pig Idea, Stop Dumping and the FSE Network. Feedback is the charity that governs these campaigns, as well as our wider work influencing public attitudes and government and business policies on food waste.
We are unique in combining high-profile, innovative and inspiring public campaigning with hard-hitting research and expert advice on food waste reduction, which we communicate to decision-makers across government, business and the third sector. We specialise in shining a light on the hidden causes of waste across the food supply chain. We work to raise the profile of existing initiatives that offer the solutions to food waste; where solutions do not currently exist, we catalyse the creation of new organisations and projects to implement them.
With a track record of changing the policies of some of the world’s biggest food companies and reaching out to millions of people through our projects, our innovative campaigning style has helped to elevate food waste from a non-issue several years ago to one now recognised as an urgent international priority.
We believe that tackling food waste is a massive and immediate opportunity to reduce the environmental impact and improve the social value of our food system. Food waste campaigning also offers a unique and accessible platform from which to communicate the wider issues of food sustainability to the public.
