"Britain is the most wasteful country in the European Union when it comes to food, with 15 million tonnes of food wasted per year”
-Feeding Britain: Six Months On
As a whole charity, DCFA have prevented the production of over 51 tonnes of carbon emissions.
DCFA in Cornwall is run and functions with a whole range of volunteers from various backgrounds, all of whom are passionate about DCFA and it's cause. We have food hubs in Exeter, Plymouth and Cornwall but DCFA is not a Foodbank. Our approach is different as we do not provide emergency food parcels to individuals. We are all just volunteers that believe that the wastage of food is unnecessary when there are those that could use it.
“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”
― Franklin D. Roosevelt
