Charles and Camilla will visit a food redistribution center and talk to supermarket staff about how to redirect surplus to those in need.
The five-year project represents one of Charles’ passions.
Charles will also announce on his birthday that his Prince’s Trust charity will be renamed the King’s Trust.
The name change avoids confusion with Prince William’s Royal Foundation now that Charles is King. The foundation, founded in 1976, will evolve under Charles’ reign.
Although busy with his public duties, the King has planned an intimate family dinner at Clarence House on Tuesday evening.
Attendees will be limited to close relatives such as Camilla, William, and Kate. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have not been invited, as there was no invitation to the party, according to the Sussexes’ spokesman.
Combining service to the community with personal celebrations, Charles celebrates his 75th birthday with both public and private joy.
