FoodCycle Manchester cooks every Wednesday evening at the Roby, a mental health and social inclusion initiative in Longsight, Manchester.

We serve healthy three-course meals each week for around 40 people and encourage local people to volunteer, to help develop new skills and also feel a part of the wider community.

Volunteer

FoodCycle Manchester 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 Manchester.

Please email [email protected] if you need more information.

I come here because I was on the streets for about a month and a half, sleeping in Piccadilly Gardens on park benches… Before this I had everything: a house, a car, a job, everything. Due to circumstances and being made redundant, I lost everything. I found myself on the streets. You feel worthless – the lowest of the low. Out of 10, I’d give FoodCycle 11! A lot of people leave here with happy faces and full tummies. It’s really beneficial for people like me. They [the volunteers] are guardian angels
