FoodCycle is an award-winning national charity that combines volunteers, surplus food and spare kitchen spaces to create nutritious meals for people at risk from food poverty and social isolation. We run 16 volunteer-powered community projects across the UK which reclaim perfectly edible surplus ingredients from supermarkets and food retailers. These are then cooked into healthy community meals; bringing people from all walks of life together at the dining table to enjoy a nutritious three-course meal in a warm and welcoming environment. Our first ever meal was served in May 2009. Since then FoodCycle has expanded to 16 projects nationwide which have served over 40,000 meals, made out of 35,000kg of surplus food by a network of over 1000 volunteers who have given over 29,000 hours of their time. Case Study: The FoodCycle Hub in Cambridge is based at The Centre at St Pauls in Cambridge and serves every Saturday lunchtime to people at risk from food poverty and social isolation including homeless people, older people, low-income families, and people affected by mental ill health. Virginia Cole, an 87-year old beneficiary at FoodCycle Cambridge says "I heard about FoodCycle and came with my late husband. Since he has died I don't like to cook just for myself, so this is perfect and I am grateful... I come here to meet all kinds of people... no matter who you are you are always made to feel welcome.?
