Every day the UK food retail industry sends 1.6million tonnes of surplus food to landfill, which contributes to the increase in greenhouse gases. At the same time there are four million people in the UK who are living below the breadline.
Plan Zheroes' aim is to close this unnecessary gap by mapping businesses with excess food, and connecting them with organisations able to receive and convert it into meals for citizens on low income. Currently, Plan Zheroes has a team of 5 regular contributors, and is launching the new Platform developed by Keytree, entirely pro-bono with the value of £250K, which is a bespoke, mobile responsive and accessible from phones, tablets and laptops.
