Our aims

Food On Our Doorstep aims to:

  • Provide regular access to a sustainable supply of food to people at risk of food insecurity
  • Increase disposable income for local families to improve life chances and wellbeing
  • Reduce the amount of food being sent to landfill in the UK by utilising surplus food
  • Encourage families to access local support services and be signposted to other agencies

Our impact

From the feedback we receive, we know our clubs make a huge difference to members. People tell us Food On Our Doorstep has changed their lives massively and that they couldn’t live without it. As well as being financially better off, our members say they eat more healthily, as the food they receive challenges them to try new foods.

We love seeing what we get and planning meals around the ingredients.

How to get involved


We’re looking for volunteers to support Food On Our Doorstep (e.g. packing food bags, serving customers). All FOOD Club volunteers receive a wide range of benefits, such as free training (e.g. food hygiene, LifeSkills) and free membership of the scheme for one year.

For more information, please contact your nearest FOOD Club Coordinator or email food@family-action.org.uk
