FoodCycle is a national charity that puts on weekly, free community meals for people in need. These meals are cooked by volunteers with surplus food that would otherwise go to waste, and our volunteers serve a delicious three-course meal to our guests, as well as share the meal and conversation with them. We believe that no one should be hungry or lonely! FoodCycle Wembley is due to launch on Tuesday 28th March, 2023 and will meet every Tuesday evening at the Park Lane Methodist Church.
We’re looking for both cooking and hosting volunteers at our project! Cooking volunteers help cook a 3 course meal and hosting volunteers set up the venue and create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
We are also looking for ‘Project Leaders’ to join and lead our fabulous teams at sessions. FoodCycle Project Leaders are the inspirational volunteers that keep our projects running. Becoming a Project Leader is a unique opportunity to gain a whole range of skills and experiences. By regularly leading at FoodCycle Wembley and being part of the Project Leader team, you will witness the profound impact that the project has on the local community.
The team as a whole plays a vital role within the FoodCycle Family- helping to strengthen and build a resilient community through conversation, and create a warm, welcoming environment for our guests – this helps support mental health, wellbeing and reduce loneliness. Lots of our guests are lonely or vulnerable and really value our volunteers’ support.
