WRAP and Swansea University have successfully collaborated on a surplus food redistribution project involving student volunteers (Feet) to collect surplus food from a variety of sources.  The university has made available transportation and storage (Fridges) to facilitate this. The surplus (Food) is then distributed to local charities.  The university developed the project further to set up a Community Lunch programme involving local school children, university catering staff and community members where the surplus was transformed (Fingers) into meals and served for free. 

The session provided a case study and the inspiration for you to implement similar schemes in your organisation.
