Project launched to battle food waste and poverty on His Majesty’s birthday

The King has celebrated his birthday by launching a scheme to help people facing food poverty.

His Majesty has set up The Coronation Food Project, alongside Baroness Louise Casey, which aims to cut down on the millions of tonnes of surplus food thrown away while at the same time helping people who are struggling in the cost of living crisis.

Speaking on BBC Breakfast this morning, Baroness Casey said while it woudn’t solve all the problems, ‘we can have a good go at trying to help some people’ while also helping the environment by reducing food waste.

She added the organisation was taking a leaf from existing charities such as The Felix Project in London that take surplus from supermarkets and manufacturers and put it into food larders and banks.

‘This will turbo charge that [idea],’ Baroness Casey said.

‘At the moment about 30 per cent of all food waste is actually at farms and also in manufacturing, so an awful lot of food waste is not in the supermarkets, it is further up the food chain.

‘This is a very ambitious project. Today we’re bringing together many manufacturers, many from farming as well as supermarkets… we are talking to them [about] how we can reduce that waste.’

The home of the King’s Foundation marks the occasion joined by singer Leee John

At Dumfries House in Scotland, the home of the King’s Foundation, a gathering of community figures to mark the King’s birthday has been held.

Singer Leee John joined his 96-year-old mother Jessie Stephens, a leading figure in Britain’s Caribbean community, at the Highgrove celebration.

She was one of the Windrush generation chosen to have their portrait painted and exhibited nationally to mark their contribution to British society.

John said at the time of the launch of the paintings, commissioned by Charles when he was the Prince of Wales, the King and Queen ‘said out of all the portraits my mum’s was the best’.

He added: ‘I met him in the 80s when Imagination did a gig at the Royal Albert Hall, back then we did some work for the Prince’s Trust and we were helping the youth in that time, 1985.

‘So he was always very much about the community and very much about the environment.’
