Arrangements are in place for the distribution of surplus Ministry of Defence (MOD) 10-Man Ration packs through FareShare (a UK food charity). However, since initiating the agreement with FareShare on 1 April 2019, due to effective MOD stock management, no 10-Man Ration packs have become available for gifting.
