FoodCycle use food that would otherwise go to waste and put on a free social dinner for anyone who wants to come along, whether hungry or lonely, they welcome everyone to come for dinner and meet other people

GoodGym has delivered hundreds of leaflets for FoodCycle's free social dinners so if you can spare the time- it would be great to drop in and support this community organisation by volunteering!

As well as feeding anyone who’s hungry, the project helps to reduce food waste and gives lonely people a place to meet others and have a chat. There is no criteria to be met in order to come along to the session for a hot meal, everybody is welcome and the guests are made up of a variety of different people from all walks of life. Volunteers are encouraged to attend to either help collect the ingredients, cook or host- which involves setting up, chatting with the guests, serving tea's and coffee's and making sure everyone feels welcome.

The different roles are available at different times. These are: Food collection 14:45 - 15:45, Cooking Team 15:45 - 19:00, Early Hosting 17:00 - 20:00 & Late Hosting 18:00 - 20:00

If you sign up for the task here on GoodGym, you MUST also sign up on the FoodCycle website as the two don't currently communicate with each other. The link is below and here you will be able to see what slots are available and at which dates / times.

There will be one Group Leader from FoodCycle and then a number of other volunteers who in my experience are always very friendly and encouraging. It's a really great group to be a part of! If it's your first time, you access the church hall not by the main front door of the church, but just to the right of this if you walk down there is a door on your left.

You can see what [positions need filling each week here https://volunteer.foodcycle.org.uk/opportunity/a1d0800000JkW5pAAF/foodcycle-luton

You'll need to sign up for a volunteer account to confirm your place on a session, sign up here
