About Curb Hunger

We are Curb Hunger. We install vending machines in key locations across the UK, providing essential items to the homeless. Our machines dispense three free items a day, with women given access to a fourth item once a month. Items include food, soft drinks, sanitary and toiletry products, dog food, books and more. Machine access is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

We aim to provide some of the most basic necessities to the most vulnerable in our society.

How does it work?

As well as providing essential items to the homeless we also focus on incentivising our users to keep in regular contact with local services, where they can gain the necessary support to begin improving their situation. Each machine has a corresponding partner organisation in the form of a charity or day centre, and continued machine access is contingent on weekly visits to the local partner. At these visits overall wellbeing is monitored, and their account recharged to allow access for the following week.
