FOOD CYCLE

/ 31 January 2019

FoodCycle is a charity that uses donated vegetables and fruit from supermarket, shops and small businesses that would otherwise go to waste. Food Cycle volunteers then cook up a weekly three course meal at each of the charity’s thirty-nine UK locations. Anyone at all can drop in for a hot, nourishing meal in a welcoming, community environment. The atmosphere is cheerful and warm, with friendships forming among guests of all ages. And it’s not just those eating the meals who benefit from FoodCycle – cooks and hosts get so much out of the experience that volunteer slots often book up weeks in advance.

Ruth and Eamonn visited Food Cycle’s location in Norwood Junction to lend a helping hand and find out more about this amazing organisation, meeting the different people who help to make FoodCycle
