Become a Hub Leader



What is a Hub Leader?

FoodCycle’s Hub Leaders are the inspirational volunteers that keep our Hubs cooking.

If you’ve been to a FoodCycle Hub, you will have encountered at least one Hub Leader, running the kitchen and making sure that all volunteers and guests enjoy the meal and the company.

But being a FoodCycle Hub Leader is about much more than just running cooking sessions; our Hub Leaders are involved in managing all aspects of the project, from co-ordinating volunteers, managing relationships with food donors and community fundraising, to community engagement, marketing, PR and social media.

FoodCycle provides training for Hub Leaders in all of these areas at our annual Hub Leader conference, and supports each team throughout the year to develop these skills as they put them into practice at their Hubs.

From all age groups, backgrounds, and occupations, our Hub Leaders range from students to the retired and everything in between, all united by their passion to make something amazing happen in their community.
