About 25 people volunteer with us at FoodCycle Norwich each week so we’re always in need of more help! If you could help with food collections, prep, cooking or serving then you’d be more than welcome!
If you’d like to see how things work and join the community for a sit-down meal then you can visit on Fridays at 7pm.
Lots of different people can be at risk from food poverty and social isolation. Our Hub serves people including homeless people, vulnerable adults, and young families, providing a tasty, nutritious meal in a safe and welcoming environment. If you could help us to provide a meal for someone today,please donate just £3.
“It’s like an extension of the family dining table, only everyone’s invited.”
