Hello! We’re FoodCycle Pompey. We collect food from retailers that would otherwise be thrown away, and with the help of lovely volunteers cook it up into a tasty, healthy three-course meals for those most in need in our city.

We cook and serve tasty three-course hot meals from The John Pounds Centre in Old Portsmouth every Tuesday.

FoodCycle Portsmouth 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 Portsmouth.

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

What motivates me to come along? It is definitely the food, it is definitely the community aspect... I like to be around more people to try and improve my social skills, - a lifelong plan!
