FoodCycle LSE partners with The Food Chain to provide a weekly communal meal every Sunday in Kings Cross.
The Food Chain have been providing a whole range of nutritional support for people in London living with HIV since 1988, and we are working in partnership to provide a nutritious Sunday evening meal in a welcoming atmosphere for people with living with HIV and their families.
We’re always looking for helping hands to come along and get involved! We have opportunities to volunteer in the kitchen, from 11 - 2 pm every Sunday, or hosting our guests and serving the food from 12.45 - 4pm.
If you’d like to get involved, please register on our site and take the food safety quiz before signing up to one of our events.
FoodCycle LSE’s meals are for people living with HIV and their families. For an open service to attend, please check out the nearby FoodCycle Hubs in Islington and Bloomsbury.
Lots of different people can be at risk from food poverty and social isolation. If you could help us to provide a meal for someone, in a safe and welcoming environment, please donate just £3.
We’re the LSE Hub: FoodCycle’s longest running project! We’ve been serving every Sunday since 2009, originally at Holy Cross Centre Trust and now at The Food Chain, where we use surplus food to create nutritious meals in a welcoming atmosphere for people living with HIV and their families.
