If you like what FoodCycle does and want to make a difference in communities across the country, there are tonnes of ways you can get involved.  Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, there is some variation in how our Projects are running.  Most of our Projects offer our Cook and Collect takeaway service, where guests can come and collect nutritious, free meals.

All of our Projects are run by a team of incredible volunteers and we are always looking for more people to join our team.  Volunteer roles include cooking, collecting or hosting.  You can also support our new ‘Check in and chat’ service by signing up to make weekly phones calls and having a natter with our guests.

As soon as we resume our community meals, we will also need food collection volunteers, cooks, hosts and Project Leaders. You can still sign up for these roles now, but we may not have any opportunities until later in the year.

FoodCycle is an essential service providing much needed food to people and communities across the country. Under new lockdown rules we CAN STILL OPERATE.
