Fundraise for FoodCycle

Thank you for considering fundraising for FoodCycle. All the money that you raise will help us provide vulnerable and lonely people with tasty, nutritious food and good conversation.

We know that fundraising is about more than just making money – it’s a great way to engage with your local community, to raise awareness of FoodCycle’s incredible work and to challenge yourself whilst having fun with your friends and family.

If you need any support or more information on fundraising, please email Athene from our team.

Time for Tea

Fancy holding a bake sale, tea party or office bake off for charity? Download our CommuniTEA Party Fundraising Pack, with lots of tips on holding a tea party whilst raising funds for FoodCycle, including printable fundraising materials and some of our favourite recipes.

FoodCycle 50

Throughout April, we’re challenging you to set yourself a 30-day fitness target around the number 50 and raise a minimum of £100 to help vulnerable people across the country.  Ideas include: 🚲 Cycling 50 miles a week or across the month ⭐ 50 star jumps a day. Find out more and sign up.

Come Dine with Me

As the colder months come, what better time to start a supper club or your own Come Dine with Me style competition. You could explore different cultures by each household choosing a national theme (we’re thinking Italian, Mexican or Lebanese), or otherwise host a one-off, ticketed event where you can impress your friends and family with your culinary skills.

Ready, Set, Go!

We have hundreds of charity spaces at sports events across the country, ranging from short fun runs to full Olympic-scale triathlons. Have a look at our ‘Run for FoodCycle’ page to sign up and for more information on events in your local area.

  • 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.
