5 favourite things about FoodCycle

We love sitting down and chatting with our guests and hearing what they think about FoodCycle. On a recent visit to FoodCycle Islington, we asked guests what they like about the meal and why it makes a difference. Here are their top 5 favourite reasons to come and eat with us…

  1. Tasty food is good for the body and the mind

This is what my body needs because my immune system is low. Coming here now I’m getting all the vitamins and I’m really thankful. You’re all kind to do this for us, I love vegetables and I love salads and things.” Theresa

 

  1. Meeting new people

I love coming here because it’s quiet, it’s fun and you get to talk to different people. So many different people and it’s like you lot, you’re all different. I get to know you and I enjoy that.” Dean

 

  1. Trying out new tastes and flavours

This is the best dish I’ve had in here: the roast vegetables, they’re very, very nice. It’s the first time I’ve tasted roast beetroot. The way things are mixed together, the broccoli with lemon, it’s very nice.” Maria

 

  1. Eating together makes you happy

The people that are here, they are indescribably for me, uplifting… it is really real and so vital. It gives me a lift.” Sean

 

  1. Give something back to your community

It’s very good of them to do that for us. It’s very good, they’re very good cooks as well!” Susie
