Who We Are

At Lumi Place C.I.C., our passion lies in creating a more sustainable and equitable society in the New Ferry community.

We believe that access to healthy and nutritious food should be a basic human right, and we are committed to making this a reality for all residents, regardless of their financial situation.

Unlike traditional food banks that rely solely on donations, we adopt an innovative approach to addressing food insecurity. By partnering with local supermarkets and food retailers, we are able to collect surplus food that would otherwise go to waste.

Food Waste in UK

  • A third of all food produced globally is thrown away

  • The UK wastes approximately 9.52 million tonnes of food every year.

  • This total is enough to feed upwards of 30 million people a year, yet 8.4 million live in food poverty in the UK

  • WRAP estimates that 70% of food waste comes from households (6.7 million tonnes), 16% from manufacturers, 12% from hospitality and food services, and 2% from the retail industry.

  • 6.4 million tonnes (67%) of this wasted food could have been eaten! In UK households, it’s estimated that this number climbs to as high as 70%.

  • The value of food wasted by UK households each year is estimated to be around £14 billion.

  • The average household spends £470 on food that ends up in the bin every year.

  • The UK produces the largest amount of food waste in Europe

  • The hospitality and food service sector (including restaurants, hotels, and catering) generates around 920,000 tonnes of food waste annually.

  • The retail sector in the UK contributes around 270,000 tonnes of food waste each year, with supermarkets being a major source.

  • Only 7% of the total food surplus in the UK retail and manufacturing sectors is currently being redistributed.

  • Food waste in the UK generates approximately 25 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions annually, contributing to climate change.

  • On average, each person in the UK wastes around 70 kg of food per year, which is equivalent to 140 meals.

  • The UK government has set a target to reduce food waste by 20% by 2025 and WRAP wants to get to 50% by 2030.
