Volunteer

We’re always looking for new volunteers for a range of different roles within the Hub – whether you’d just like to lend a hand in the kitchen or fancy organising a fundraising event for us, we’d love to hear from you!

There are plenty of ways you can get involved – all you need to do is register on My FoodCycle, our volunteer website, and take the food safety quiz before signing up to help out at one of our events.

 

Visit

If you’d like to come along for a three-course meal and some company, you can visit Our Lady and the English Martyrs at 12.30pm on Saturdays or Barnwell Baptist Church every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month– anyone is welcome.

 

Donate

A variety of people can be at risk from food poverty and social isolation. Our Hub serves lots of different people including the elderly, the homeless, people who have been long-term unemployed and those on low incomes. We provide a hearty and healthy meal in a welcoming and safe environment.  If you could help us to provide a meal for someone today, please donate just £3.

 

Stories

“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… no matter who you are you are always made to feel welcome.”

- Virginia Cole, 87-year old beneficiary at FoodCycle Cambridge.

 

“I’ve never come across a charity that ticks all the boxes like this. You’re doing something which is really positive to the environment by using surplus food, you’re meeting new people, talking to new people, getting new skills, and you’re also giving something back to the community. The feeling you get when you give somebody who really needs a meal a warm nutritious meal, you can’t beat it really!” 

- Zoë, Hub Leader at FoodCycle Cambridge.

 

Welcome

Hi! We’re the Cambridge FoodCycle Hub. We serve a delicious lunch at Our Lady and the English Martyrs every Saturday to a range of people from the community. We've also recently begun cooking at Barnwell Baptist Church every other Wednesday evening! We work in partnership with local organisations such as the Cambridge Love Food Hate Waste campaign. Each week we collect surplus produce locally from Sainsbury’s, the City Food Bank, Cambridge Crop Share, the Cambridge Fruit and Veg Company and Lensfield Road Farmer’s Market! We then turn these ingredients into exciting and nutritious meals for our service users to enjoy.

Donations come in many forms

Thanks to our suppliers, volunteers, and community partners, FoodCycle is a low-cost model with a big impact.

However we do have some core costs and are reliant on your generosity to help us run.
