Abstract Bradford is a large northern metropolitan district authority with a population of approximately 500K people. Food poverty is a growing issue in the district, 33K children have been identified as living in households affected by child poverty and the likely assumption is that these will be experiencing food poverty also. A pilot project run in 2015/16 used vegetable waste from the Council run wholesale market (St James) and the food production service for schools (Central Processing Unit: CPU) to create 840 portions of soup. This was distributed through 40 providers targeting vulnerable households; families on low incomes and with young children; homeless people; those using day centres etcFood waste from St James is estimated at 50 tonnes a week, exclusive of that already disposed of as livestock feed and/or for composting. Traders, Council and VCS are all keen to re-direct food waste, address food poverty and reduce waste processing costs. It is planned to restart the project working with a partner from the voluntary sector (VCS). This provider; supported by PH, has created a central food storehouse complete with a walk in chiller, pay and you feel café and facilities for other food poverty based projects. It is hoped that with the CPU we can expand supply chains to include services where the Council is funding meals. This may also place the CPU in a position to bid for local procurement opportunities such as the provision of hospital food services.
