Our Impact


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, we are running our Cook and Collect takeaway service.  Providing hot, nutritious meals and food for those in need.

We know that so many people are also struggling with loneliness and feeling isolated, so we also launched our Check-in and Chat service, where volunteers call guests for a weekly natter.

We hope to return to Community meals as soon as it is safe to do so.

Visit the location finder to see what is running in your area, become a volunteer or find out more about Check-in and chat.

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.
