The Prince of Wales visits Surplus to Supper charity


The Prince of Wales helps to pack crates of food at food redistribution charity Surplus to Supper

The Prince of Wales has visited Surrey to spotlight the community and environmental impact the surplus food redistribution charity is having in the surrounding area.

His Royal Highness visited Surplus to Supper at their home of Sunbury Cricket Club, to learn about their work bridging the gap between food waste and food poverty across Surrey and West London.

The charity redistributes over three tonnes of surplus food a day to hundreds of local projects such as food banks, charities, schools, and community organisations.

During his visit, The Prince met volunteers who sort and deliver food, and helped load their delivery vans before travelling with a driver to transport the food.

The Prince of Wales then visited the Hanworth Centre Hub, a youth centre in Feltham, which provides a range of services to create a safer and better-connected community and receives a regular delivery from Surplus to Supper. 

His Royal Highness made the delivery from Surplus to Supper before meeting staff and volunteers to hear about the impact the food has on the services they are able to provide.

The Hub offers a safe, welcoming space for young people, some of whom have faced adversity, and supports them to build confidence and new skills for the future.
