Want to make a difference by fundraising for us? Become a star FoodCycler! Dig out those running shoes, cook up a storm in the kitchen or nominate FoodCycle for your company’s Charity Of The Year… the options are endless and there’s something for everyone!

Your support is vital to our work reducing food waste, food poverty and social isolation across the UK – your support will make a huge difference.


Half marathons, fun runs, 10Ks, Tough Mudders, skydives, hikes and bike rides… there are so many possibilities! Find out more on our Challenge Events page - we’d love to hear about the exciting challenges that you are setting yourself and we’d be thrilled if you chose to fundraise for FoodCycle.

And if physical challenges aren’t your thing, how about getting sponsored to shave your head, grow a moustache or throw a bucket of water over yourself! What would your family and friends love to see you do? Or maybe not do… our founder Kelvin was sponsored not to get a tattoo of our logo on his arm and ended up raising over £500 (mainly from his mum).

It’s very simple to fundraise for us… We recommend using Virgin Money Giving as they don’t take a cut of your valuable donations. Just set up your own bespoke page and get going!



Organise your own event

From pub quizzes to clothes swaps, dinner parties to dress-down-days, carol-singing to bag-packing, there are so many ways you can raise money for FoodCycle. Get in touch with the team – we’d love to hear youtr ideas and support you to make the event a huge success.

Complaints Policy and Procedure

FoodCycle is committed to the highest fundraising standards. Our supporters are a central, valued part of FoodCycle’s activity. We simply wouldn’t be able to run our projects without continued support from our fundraisers and donors.

We are proud members of the Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB) and are committed to accountability, transparency and professionalism at all times. We achieve this by self-regulation – ensuring that all staff members adhere to the Institute of Fundraising Code of Practice and that all fundraising activities are carried out in accordance with the FRSB’s key principles.

Please take a look at FoodCycle’s Fundraising Promise and do not hesitate to get in touch in accordance with our Fundraising Complaints Policy if you think we are falling short.
