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.
Over the past few months, we’ve had to change the way we support our guests and run our Projects. Some services are ‘On pause’ but where possible, volunteers have been delivering food parcels, and over the coming months these will become our Cook and collect takeaway service.
Unable to bring people together, we have also launched Check-in and chat, where volunteers call guests for a weekly natter.
We hope to get all of our Projects back to Community meals as soon as it is safe to do so.

Anyone who steps through the door of a FoodCycle meal, first timer or seasoned regular, is made to feel comfortable and welcomed.
When food is served, volunteers and guests sit down to eat together. For many of our guests, this meal may be the one moment in a week they share a meal and conversation with other people.
