Fundraise for FoodCycle

As lockdown restrictions ease and summer nears, we can’t wait to hear about your fundraising efforts. From May 17th, we’re able to meet as a group of 6 indoors and a group of 30 outdoors, meaning plenty of opportunity for fundraising events between friends and families, whilst still following Covid-restrictions. If you need any support or more information on fundraising, please email Athene from our team.

Park Life
Parks are ideal places to hold fundraising events among your friends. You can host a picnic in support of FoodCycle and encourage everyone to bring a dish or alternatively hold your own sports day, with an entry fee for every game. We’re thinking egg and spoon, a three-legged race or a backwards 100m sprint…

Supper Time
How about starting a supper club among your five closest friends or family and charge for tickets? Get your apron on and show off your culinary skills, whilst raising money for a great cause. You could each take it in turns to cook, perhaps exploring different cultures with your evening – Mexican, Thai, Italian or Indian would be a great start.

Take a Walk
Arrange a sponsored hike through the countryside with a group of friends in support of FoodCycle. You could take on the challenge of a 50km mission, hike up a mountain or take on a real adventure by travelling for a few days and camping overnight. You can easily set up a JustGiving page by following this link to spread the word and to allow supporters to easily sponsor you.

Spreading the word
Include a link to FoodCycle’s Donate page in your Out of Office or email-footer or on your personal or businesses social media pages.  Just copy and paste this link

How your fundraising helps FoodCycle


  • Do it for the cause. We all agree that food waste and food poverty simply should not coexist. By raising funds for FoodCycle you’ll help us to turn even more surplus food into meals for people who are struggling to get by.
  • Do it for yourself. Reaching a goal always feels great; fundraising for FoodCycle is a fantastic way to achieve this whether that be a personal goal, a fitness challenge, or a community event.
  • Do it to make a difference. Our projects have a strong local impact, and your money will enable our projects to serve even more meals.
