About DCFA

DCFA is not a Foodbank. Foodbanks issue food to individuals whereas DCFA issues only to charitable organisations that feed the disadvantaged in our communities either by providing cooked meals or by issuing food parcels.

Foodbanks obtain their food from supermarket customer donations. DCFA endeavours to obtain surplus, short-date or end-of-line stocks from producers, manufacturers and retailers... food that might otherwise go to waste. This alleviates Food Poverty and Food Waste and saves suppliers Landfill Tax too!

By redirecting waste away from landfill sites, DCFA also helps to limit the emission of the greenhouse gases that influence climate change. They lead by example in monitoring their own carbon footprint and can help you to reduce yours by donating food supplies.
