We’re FoodCycle – a national charity that combines volunteers, surplus food and spare kitchen spaces to create tasty, nutritious meals for people at risk of food poverty and social isolation.
We run over 80 projects across the country, united by the simple idea that food waste and food poverty should not coexist.
Across the country we open our doors every week to 1500 people who may be hungry or lonely and give them a hearty warm welcome.
Our model is simple: we combine surplus food, volunteers and spare kitchen spaces to create nutritious three-course meals for people at risk of food poverty and social isolation. We are indebted to our 8000 registered volunteers who provide an amazing service to their local community week after week. Their spirit, determination, and donation of time and skills is exceptional.
We are hugely grateful to our guests too. Come rain or shine they make the effort to come along to the FoodCycle meal every week. It’s fair to say we’ve all made new friends and it’s a real community.
