Our Impact

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 850 meals a week using surplus food (cooked in spare kitchen space).

230,000

265

tonnes of reclaimed surplus food

Our Impact

Guests make friends with others in their community

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.
