Start a FoodCycle meal

FoodCycle meals are a vital service for vulnerable people and we want to serve more. That’s where you come in.

If you like what we do and think FoodCycle could benefit your community, we would love to hear from you.

You’ll receive

  • A tried and tested model
  • Partnership with a well-known, award-winning charity with a recognised brand and reputation
  • High quality training: 2 day introductory course, ongoing training and two yearly conferences
  • Monitoring and evaluation to measure the contribution you make to your local community
  • Assistance with outreach
  • Relationships with national food suppliers
  • Access to 12,000 registered volunteers and a dedicated online volunteer management system
  • Extensive fundraising experience and support
  • Central communications and marketing support, with a social media following of over 55,000 people

A perfect partner 

You might be a community centre, a place of faith, a charity or a timebank – we’re all ears…

We do, however, ask that you:

  • are aligned with FoodCycle’s vision and mission
  • have a staff team able to support the project
  • have a community presence, connections with local services and have a strong public reputation
  • have support: you can demonstrate that you can recruit a team of volunteers
  • look forward: you’ve got the appetite to grow your existing services, you want to scale and support more vulnerable people in your local area

What’s next?

  • If you like what we do and think you could help build your community through a FoodCycle project, here’s what you do next…
  • Read our Partner booklet to find out more about the benefits of partnering and the support you’ll receive
  • Complete this questionnaire and return to our Head of Programmes, Sophie Tebbetts who will take the conversation further
