So you’re considering fundraising for FoodCycle? That’s fantastic! Your fundraising will help us provide vulnerable and lonely people with tasty, nutritious food and good conversation.
Why fundraise? Fundraising is about more than just making money – it’s a great way to engage with your local community, to raise awareness of FoodCycle’s incredible work and to challenge yourself whilst having fun with your friends and family.
Do it for the cause. Food waste and food poverty simply should not coexist. By raising funds for FoodCycle you’ll help us to turn even more surplus food into meals for people who are struggling to get by.
Do it for yourself. Reaching a goal always feels great. Fundraising for FoodCycle is a fantastic way to achieve a personal goal, fitness challenge, or community event.
Do it to make a difference. Our Projects have a strong local impact, and your money will enable us to serve even more meals.
If you need any support or more information on fundraising, please get in touch.
We have hundreds of charity spaces at sports events across the country, ranging from short fun-runs to full Olympic-scale triathlons. Have a look at our ‘Run for FoodCycle’ page to sign up and for more information on events in your local area.
