Join Unilever in The Fight Against Food Poverty 

In the UK today 11,500 tonnes of food will be thrown away, yet some struggle to put food on the table with one in five families living in poverty.

Unilever is partnering with Oxfam UK to provide food to families in need. Join the fight against food poverty and share a picture of your empty plate using #ClearAPlate.


In partnership with Oxfam

Do you know what really happens at a foodbank? Unilever has partnered with Oxfam to help provide two million meals to those in need through organisations running foodbanks.

Ending food waste


Unilever believes children see the future in ways that adults can't and is supporting 15 year old Grace Jones, who is inspiring others to turn their feelings into action.


Find out how the #ClearAPlate campaign aims to bring the issue of food waste and food poverty into the public conscience.  

Mumsnet Bloggers get involved

Unilever asked the Mumsnet Bloggers Network to get involved and help raise awareness by blogging about the #ClearAPlate campaign.

Recipe cards

Everyone loves a roast dinner, but it's easy to go overboard with all the trimmings. Put any leftovers to good use with the Sunday Roast Squeak, or use up left-over parsnips in a Clever Curried Soup.

Recipes to use up food

Unilever asked Mumsnetters to share their biggest food waste culprits. Take a look at the repeat offenders and some handy recipes to use them up.
