We believe there has never been a better time to create a better future for our children; a world where everyone has enough food to eat and no child goes to bed hungry.
Where every child lives to their fifth birthday and has the right to a happy childhood.
Where every home has enough water to drink and to wash, cook and clean.
And where everybody can enjoy life today while protecting the planet for future generations.
Unilever brightFuture is a platform that helps unite and amplify the efforts of a growing community of people who believe it is possible to build a world where everyone lives well and lives sustainably.
Who recognise we can only achieve this if we all work together to do small actions every day that make a real difference.
And who inspire others to join us in making this the way everyone chooses to live.

Get inspired by new leaders and join the fight against food poverty in the UK #ClearAPlate
In the UK today, 11,500 tonnes of food will be thrown away, yet one in five families will struggle to put food on the table. We have already provided two million meals to British families through our partnership with Oxfam UK. With your help we will provide half a million more. #ClearAPlate because no one should struggle to feed their family while food is being wasted.

Get healthy and cut out food waste
At the turn of the millennium, you were probably about as likely to have heard of a food bank as you were Facebook. The Trussell Trust hadn’t even launched its first one. By 2011, Trussell Trust was responsible for providing three days emergency food support to 128,000 people. Last year, that number exploded to 913,000. Despite food banks being a last resort to those who visit, more and more are being referred to them every year.
In the UK, we waste 11,500 tonnes of food every day. Yet, at the same time thousands of families are struggling to put food on the table.
At the young age of fifteen, Grace Jones is an accomplished speaker about food poverty. A passionate believer in the need to reduce food waste, she’s adamant that we shouldn’t waste food while others go hungry.
Preventing food waste is good for everyone. Good for the environment, good for you, and good for your bank balance. But what about those leftovers that can’t be eaten or stored? There’s no choice but to throw that stuff away, right?
Raise awareness by pledging your support for zero hunger.
Have you ever thought about what’s in the pre-packaged sandwiches you buy on your lunch break? This week many of us will buy lunch in some shape or form without realising that another tasty option could be right under our noses.
Many UK families struggle to make ends meet. At Unilever, we are working with Oxfam, and its partners, Trussell Trust and FareShare. We are committed to doing everything we can to turn this around. We see a bright future where people from every background can thrive.
Every parent wants their family to enjoy mouth-watering meals made from healthy, natural ingredients, but getting the balance between simple and nutritious can be tricky.
