surplus food is saved each week by FoodCycle

We know food waste is a huge challenge for our planet – but we are optimistic that through saving surplus food, changing perceptions around food and through campaigns, we can make a huge difference.

We use food to build communities, tackle loneliness and provide places for people to make friends. We see on a daily basis the real difference that communal eating can make. Food is a vital tool to supporting our local communities, bringing us together and connecting us as humans.
