Starbucks and Hubbub ‘Eat it Up Fund’ Grant Funding Opportunity

A funding opportunity for any school that has a foodbank/community fridge or wish to set one up.

Starbucks and Hubbub ‘Eat it Up Fund’ grant


  • Hubbub, the environmental charity, in partnership with Starbucks has a £200,000 fund to offer grants of up to £40,000.
  • The fund is aimed at finding and supporting creative approaches to reducing food waste.
  • The fund will support schools and registered organisations with an early-stage food waste project with potential for impact at scale.

Projects need to do some or all of the following:

  • Address pre-farmgate waste (the food production process, up to the point where the products have been harvested and prepared as produce for sale).
  • Prevent food from being wasted at the manufacturing and processing stage.
  • Minimise food waste from retailers.
  • Find creative ways to use surplus food in communities or at home.
