Leeds Hub

FoodCycle Leeds Hub



Our Leeds Hub cooks for a conversation class run by Student Action for Refugees.

We’re always looking for new volunteers and everybody is welcome to get involved – whether you’d just like to help chopping veg for a couple of hours on a Saturday morning or you are a culinary expert and would like to do the food pickup and plan our menu for the day…there’s a role for everyone. To sign up as a volunteer just click here to sign up!

We’re also looking for a volunteer driver to help pick up our surplus food on the last friday of each month. If you have a car and are free between 2 – 3.30 pm please email us at [email protected].


Newsflash – Hub Leaders needed!

FoodCycle Leeds is currently looking for passionate, organised and creative people to join the Hub Leader team!

We are especially looking for enthusiastic individuals keen to co-ordinate our fundraising efforts, and to lead our weekly cooking sessions.

If you’d like to give 6-8 hours of your time per week to help run the Leeds Hub, gaining bucket loads of skills and experience (and having plenty of fun!) in the process, please email [email protected] for more info.



Our Hub serves meals to refugees and asylum seekers taking part in an English conversation class run by STAR.


FoodCycle Leeds @ Inkwell

We also run a partnership with Leeds Mind, based at Inkwell, a creative arts centre for people with mental health issues.Here, we work with service-users to cook and serve tasty meals for the community, helping volunteers to develop their kitchen skills and confidence.

This runs on the last Friday of every month, with the meal served at 6.30pm, before Inkwell’s monthly “secret cinema” begins at 7.30pm, screening outstanding cinema from across all genres and ages of film. Why is it secret? Because the film’s title is not made public until the screening begins!

You’ll get to enjoy a delicious two-course meal, and a fabulous film for a suggested donation of just £5, all of which goes towards helping FoodCycle Leeds and Inkwell continue all their fantastic work!

  • Inkwell, 31 Potternewton Lane, Chapel Allerton, Leeds, LS7 3LW
  • 6.30pm – 10.30pm, last Friday of the month
  • Suggested donation £5



People from many walks of life can be at risk from food poverty and social isolation. We provide a hearty and healthy meal in a friendly and safe environment.  If you could help us to provide a meal for someone today, please donate just £3.



Hi! We’re the Leeds FoodCycle Hub. We work with STAR (Student Action for Refugees) Leeds and cook a hearty three-course lunch for people accessing their conversation classes on Saturday afternoons at the Little London Community Centre. We collect surplus ingredients from Sainsbury’s and then transform these ingredients into nutritious meals for refugees and asylum seekers at risk of food poverty.

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.
