Hello – we’re FoodCycle Islington! We serve every Wednesday afternoon at the Southwood Smith Centre in partnership with the mental health charity, Mind in Islington.

Each week, we collect surplus fruit and vegetables from supermarkets and local market stalls and turn these ingredients into tasty three-course meals for our guests.

This project is only open to those over the age of 18 (even if accompanied by an adult.)


Contrary to the saying – we always need more cooks! Anyone can volunteer with us, and there are plenty of roles for you even if you’re not too confident in the kitchen. Volunteer Here

FoodCycle Islington is only made possible with the great volunteers giving their time, enthusiasm and energy. We have opportunities available for people to come along and cook, host guests and be involved in collecting the surplus food donations from local suppliers.

You don’t need to have any previous cooking experience, although if you do that is just as welcome! We want as many local volunteers as possible and everyone is welcome to be a part of FoodCycle Islington.

For more information, please email [email protected].

FoodCycle is a fantastic initiative which ensures support goes to those that need it most. We are all too pleased to play our part in assisting their mammoth efforts in getting food to the more vulnerable people from the local area.
