We believe that no good food should go to waste
We redistribute surplus food to charities that turn it into meals.
We are doers. We are a community. We change lives.

Ruksak45218 provides the essentials of bedding, clothing, toiletries, footwear, school stationery, sleeping bags and other items, to young persons aged 5 to 18 years of age in Wiltshire. We take our name from a derivative of the word Rucksack and the numbers 45218, represent for five to eighteen year olds. We believe in the total equality of ALL young persons and that they should be able to concentrate on their education, free from concerns and distractions over the lack of essential items, they should have, that others on occasion, take for granted. We firmly believe that No Young Person Should Go Without.
