We will support, sponsor and invest in our communities to tackle food poverty and poor nutrition.


  • Support key charity partners to tackle food poverty.
  • Sponsor projects that deliver on food waste prevention and awareness as well as school food education and nutrition.
  • Invest in innovation and research to deliver industry-leading trials for the benefit of people and planet.

Our approach

We tackle these issues using our platform, resources, expertise, and partnerships, and through collaboration with community groups, charities and social enterprises.

Alongside our two main charity partners, Community Shop and The Felix Project, we support charities like Magic Breakfast, Dens and Edible Links. Through Zoom by Ocado, we enable customers to donate breakfasts and vouchers for purchasing fresh food to supplement donations to a local school.

Providing monetary donations and gifts 'in kind'

Through our You Give We Give scheme, we match customer donations, effectively doubling the value and providing our charity partners with two pounds worth of groceries for every pound donated. We donated £1.9 million in cash and £11.4 million in surplus stock to charity partners in 2022, with £2.8 million contributed by our customers. Additionally, we offer a charity gift voucher scheme to support fundraising efforts of charitable organisations.

Volunteering and colleague fundraising

Our 'Donate a day' initiative grants colleagues an extra day of annual leave, to step away from their desks and spend time volunteering with one of our charity partners. We also support our colleague fundraising by matching their funds raised, up to £500, every year. If they are fundraising as a team (two or more Ocado Retail employees) in their own time we match up to £1,000.
