We build communities in our Projects by combining surplus food, volunteers and spare kitchen space to create nutritious, three-course meals for the community. We currently have 37 Projects and open our doors every week to 1500 people.  As Regional Manager, you will be integral in supporting thirteen existing Projects and have the opportunity to develop more in London.
