…will you join us?

An estimated 4 million people in the UK today are affected by food poverty and in our Hubs up and down the country, people are struggling to make ends meet.

Today, we launch the Breadline Challenge 2015 to raise awareness of rising UK food poverty and raise vital funds for FoodCycle’s work across the country.

We are asking you to live on a food and drink budget of £2.86 a day for a week this November. Participants are asked to raise at least £50 for FoodCycle – which could be through sponsorship or by donating the amount you would otherwise have spent on food and drink that week.

Join FoodCycle from 16th – 22nd November to fight food poverty
