FoodCycle support people who are hungry and lonely by serving tasty lunches and dinners every single day in towns and cities across the country. Many of their guests struggle to afford the basics to eat and many will eat alone without company or conversation. Their growing number of incredible volunteers across the country serve over 1200 people a week using surplus food cooked in spare kitchen space.

They recently opened their 40th FoodCycle Project in Longbridge, Birmingham. Across their projects they are now delivering a nutritious, 3-course meal to 1,500 people a week across the country, in a warm and inviting atmosphere.

FoodCycle also recently moved their head office to London's New Covent Garden Market. The chief executive of FoodCycle, Mary McGrath, said: "We are really looking forward to being amongst London’s biggest fruit and vegetable market so that we can learn more about surplus food and build even more connections."
