Leeds Hub

Hi! We’re FoodCycle Leeds! We collect surplus ingredients from Sainsbury’s and then transform these ingredients into nutritious meals for people from the local community who are at risk of food poverty.


FoodCycle Leeds is only made possible with the great volunteers giving their time, enthusiasm and energy. We have opportunities available for people to come along and cook, host guests and be involved in collecting the surplus food donations from local suppliers.

You don’t need to have any previous cooking experience, although if you do that is just as welcome! We want as many local volunteers as possible and everyone is welcome to be a part of FoodCycle Leeds.

Please email [email protected] for more information.

I made a lot of new friends when I had virtually none. I have been coming along since my wife died nearly two years ago, somebody mentioned it at my church, why don't you try it and I disregarded that comment for a few weeks and then just strolled down one day and straight away I thought 'this is for me' and I've been coming ever since.

It was the right thing for me because when I was at home I wasn't seeing anybody, I didn't go out and was just looking at four walls and I realised that I needed to do something different."
