FoodCycle Birmingham needs new Hub Leaders

FoodCycle, a charity that provides community meals for people in need, is in urgent need of more volunteers to help keep their projects in Aston and Yardley going.

FoodCycle uses surplus food from supermarkets and local shops and transforms these ingredients into healthy three-course meals for people at risk of food poverty and loneliness.

The Birmingham projects serve dinners in South Yardley Methodist Church every Tuesday evening and at the Birmingham Settlement in Aston every Sunday afternoon for people who are struggling to make ends meet, are dealing with homelessness or living on low-incomes. However, the project is in urgent need of more ‘Project Leaders’, volunteers who play a vital role in delivering the meals.

Last year FoodCycle Birmingham served over 600 meals, saved a whopping 1980 kg of food and gave over 590 hours of time to volunteer. FoodCycle Birmingham now calls on residents to help them continue their work.

If you are committed to tackling food poverty in Birmingham, working with local vulnerable people and inspiring and leading other volunteers, FoodCycle Birmingham needs you.

Project Leaders lead their fellow volunteers as they prepare and cook the food into a delicious meal, serve the hot meal, welcome guests and spread the word about the great things FoodCycle does in the community.

Regional Manager, Cheryl Hardy, who manages FoodCycle Birmingham said: “FoodCycle Birmingham’s projects are brilliant and achieving really great things in the local community. We really need more help to make sure we can continue to support vulnerable people in the city. To do this we need your help – please join the FoodCycle movement to help us build our community through great food”
