Give Friendship and Support this #GivingTuesday


Join FoodCycle this #GivingTuesday and help us to reach out to more people affected by hunger and loneliness.

The sales of Black Friday and Cyber Monday might be behind us, but before we look forward to the festivities and excess that December brings FoodCycle invites you to pause for a moment and join us this #GivingTuesday.

We’re asking you help us give the best thing we can: friendship and support over healthy, tasty, three-course meals.

Today, as on any other Tuesday, 20 wonderful FoodCycle volunteers will be cooking up a storm in Exeter and Portsmouth. They’ll be giving up their afternoon to collect surplus ingredients, take them to the Wonford Community and Learning Centre and the John Pounds Centre, and then cooking them up into healthy meals. They’ll then be giving friendship and support to local people, who come together to share a three-course meal – always served with warmth and dignity.

Please support our volunteers by giving what you can…

1. Give 3 hours of your time

Sign up to volunteer at your local Hub and give just 3 hours of your time. You can sign up as a cooking or hosting volunteer, serving healthy meals to those in need.

2. Give £5

A donation of just £5 could do so much for FoodCycle – from covering a volunteer’s travel expenses to buying a bumper size pack of hairnets or a Food Safety Level 2 Qualification.

To give £5, text TDAY16 £3 to 70070.

You can also donate online, pop into your local Hub or write to us at Oxford House, Derbyshire Street, London E2 6HG.

3. Give us a share

Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter, and share your support for FoodCycle with your friends online.
