Closing date: 25 March, 2020 – 13:00
WRAP is looking to identify new behaviour change interventions that can be tailored to food waste prevention. The intervention must encourage citizens to waste less food. If you have a new idea that can achieve the above, please download an application pack.
Please note: applications for this grant will follow a two-stage assessment process:
Stage 1 – Your Outline Proposal
Stage 2 – Full Application
We aim to share the outcomes of the Stage 1 assessment, the week commencing 11 May.
Applications for Stage 1 are open for registration from Thursday 30 January until Wednesday 25 March at 13.00. Please email your application to [email protected].
Your application must demonstrate that your project idea will have a direct influence in changing behaviour. For example, applying an already proven intervention that has been tried and tested before, which may have covered a different subject matter or has been tested within a different environment, and can now be tailored and applied to citizens’ food waste prevention.
What is eligible?
We are looking to support interventions that will specifically focus on two behaviours:
- Buy what you eat (BWYE), and;
- Eat what you buy (EWYB).
Examples could be interventions that:
- Help promote a better understanding of Best Before Date vs Use-By Date
- Promote and encourage consumers to buy/shop better – buying the ‘right’ quantity for what is required. For example, shopping planners
- Educate citizens on how to store or freeze food correctly
The scheme is open to small or medium size enterprises in England only. The scheme will award grants between £25,000 and £100,000 for both capital and revenue project expenditure.
