Step up to the Plate
In 2019 we strengthened our commitment to achieving Target 12.3 by signing up to the UK Government’s Step up to the Plate campaign. Under this campaign, we have pledged to:
• Target, measure and act on our operational food waste, while adopting the WRAP and IGD Food Waste Reduction Roadmap
• Collaborate on tackling citizen food waste by piloting behavioural interventions, and supporting WRAP’s Love Food Hate Waste campaign
They also make a huge impact on communities through their Community Shops. These social supermarkets offer food at low prices in areas of acute deprivation, whilst also providing a social hub for members to seek welfare advice, mentoring and support services, including employment coaching, counselling and family support.
