This year’s charity is: Devon & Cornwall Food Action (DCFA).

Devon and Cornwall Food Action (DCFA) is a charity in the UK that works to combat food poverty and food waste in the counties of Devon and Cornwall.  DCFA partners with supermarkets, food manufacturers, and other suppliers to collect surplus food that would otherwise go to waste. Using their food hubs in Devon & Cornwall, these serve as central distribution points for surplus food, ensuring it reaches those who need it most.
