“FoodCycle is such a simple and effective model – people sharing a nutritious and wholesome meal prepared from food that would otherwise be thrown away. This brings communities together, reduces loneliness and helps the environment. I joined FoodCycle because this model ticks so many boxes for me. It’s inspiring to be part of this fun and vibrant organisation.”
