The Benefits of What We Do
Eat Up collects food from numerous sources and distributes the food to other charities and organisations. Opening access to the food for free.
Eat Up collecting food makes it much simpler for retailers to organise and donate their surplus food. We also accept pallets of food with our one pallet a month campaign.
We deliver the food to different community organisations who provide food directly to those in need, many of which are (as identified in the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation). We deliver to soup kitchens, family support groups, community resource centres, food banks, pantry's over four council areas, Renfrewshire, Glasgow, South and North Lanarkshire.
We are working towards food security.
Donations can be delivered to
