#SToP wasting food

Every day lots of food gets wasted so we turn it into amazing tasty dishes for our events. Join the food waste revolution!

Our Mission

We’re here to help combat the UK’s £20bn food waste crisis

An environmental enterprise which specialises in the interception of surplus food destined for waste.

We intercept edible produce from heading to landfill. This produce may be past best before, have suffered accidental damage or deemed to be surplus to requirements.

So simply put, we give ‘surplus’ food its purpose by putting it BACK onto your plate.


Our catering team are experts in transforming surplus food into delicious feasts. With years of experience getting creative in the kitchen, we are passionate about feeding bellies not bins and showing the world how beautiful, unique and tasty surplus food can be.  

From weddings and birthday parties to corporate events and funerals, we can cater for any occasion. All of our ingredients are intercepted from produce that would have otherwise been sent to landfill so we have no set menus. Instead, we can tailor make our offer to suit your event and guests, catering for all dietary requirements.

From canapes and buffets to sharing boards, family and fine dining; there are no limits to what our creative chef-led team can produce.

If you are looking for environmentally friendly event catering, please contact us at events@surplus2purpose.com to discuss your requirements. Alternatively click the button below to fill in our catering for events form and we’ll get back to you ASAP.
