WRAP is managing a programme of grants to provide new small-scale capital infrastructure and revenue support to organisations redistributing surplus food.

The grant is open to small and medium sized businesses (including not for profits) who can supply surplus food from food businesses either directly to those in need, or to other organisations who offer this service.
