Our Impact

NOURISHING COMMUNITIES

Week in, week out, we nourish the hungry and lonely in our communities with delicious meals and great conversation, using food that would otherwise go to waste. 

Our Cook and Collect service is running in towns and cities across the country, where volunteers turn surplus food into wholesome, nutritious meals.   Anyone, from any walk of life, is welcome, no questions asked.  

We know that  many people are also struggling with loneliness and feeling isolated and our Check-in and Chat service is the perfect chance for a weekly natter.  

Our many thousands of skilled, trained and dedicated volunteers help FoodCycle support those in need and we have plenty of ways you can get involved – from cooking, hosting or making weekly phone calls – we’d love you to join the FoodCycle family.  Find out more about becoming a volunteer. 

Need support?  Visit the location finder to see what meal service is running in your community, or sign up to receive a weekly call through our Check-in and Chat service.  

We hope it won’t be too long before we can bring everyone together again and return to our much loved Community Meals.

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.
