Kitchen Equipment Grant

Tranche 3

Tranche 3 of the Kitchen Equipment Grant scheme is now open.

This funding aims to support groups working to tackle issues around food waste and food poverty in their local community.

In tranche 1, the grant helped divert over 91.65 tonnes of food from the waste stream and funded 30 groups, who between them were able to purchase £45,731 of kitchen equipment. Because of this 6460 people in the community benefitted and more than 3156 additional meals are provided to the most vulnerable in society every week,

Your group can apply for a maximum of £2000. Money can be used to purchase:

  • Freezers
  • Ovens
  • Dishwashers
  • Slow cookers
  • Pots
  • Pans
  • Kitchenware
  • Utensils
  • Or any other equipment that will increase each successful group’s capacity to provide meals.

Eligible submissions will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Applications are open to Monday 31 January.
