FOOD CYCLE 

WE SERVE COMMUNITY MEALS ACROSS THE COUNTRY

We support people who are hungry and lonely by serving tasty lunches and dinners every single day in towns and cities across the country.  Many of our guests struggle to afford the basics to eat, and many will eat alone without company or conversation.

Our growing number of incredible volunteers across the country serve over 1,400 people a week using surplus food (cooked in spare kitchen space).

1,011,655    MEALS SERVED

425,000      KG OF SURPLUS FOOD SAVED

275,132      COMMUNITY DINERS HAVE EATEN WITH US

 

  • Do it for the cause. We all agree that food waste and food poverty should not coexist. By raising funds for FoodCycle, you’ll help us to turn even more surplus food into three-course meals for people who are struggling to get by.
  • Do it for yourself. Reaching a goal always feels great; fundraising for FoodCycle is a fantastic way to achieve this whether that be a personal goal, a fitness challenge, or a community event.
  • Do it to make a difference. Our projects have a strong local impact, and your money will go directly to support our projects to serve even more meals.

OUR VISION: A society where no one is hungry or lonely

OUR MISSION: To nourish communities using surplus food

OUR AIMS:

  • strengthen communities by bringing people together around a healthy meal

  • encourage friendships by creating spaces for people from all backgrounds and walks of life to have fun together

  • improve nutrition and reduce hunger by cooking healthy meals for those in need

  • change attitudes to food by cooking with surplus ingredients and spreading our passion for food and the environment


     

WHERE WE’VE COME FROM: our first cook in May 2009 will always be remembered as a pivotal moment in FoodCycle’s history. After six months of getting the key ingredients of food, volunteers and a kitchen together for the first-ever cooking session, we all looked into a pot of brown slop. It wasn’t the gourmet meal we wanted, but we’d come too far to quit.

WHERE WE’RE GOING: we’ve learned a huge amount since that first cooking session, but some things have always stayed the same: what we do, how we do it and the people we exist to serve. When a group of committed volunteers and an eclectic mix of ingredients come together to create a meal for the community, delicious meals are created out of each FoodCycle cooking session. Conversations begin and friendships are made.
