As a Surplus Food Collection volunteer you’ll play a vital part in making our community meals happen, by ensuring that your weekly FoodCycle session has a regular donation of food. You’ll pick up surplus food donations from our partner supermarkets and local retailers, ensuring a prompt, reliable and friendly collection each week. You’ll then bring the surplus food back to your local Project venue and store it securely. You don’t need to have any previous experience – you just need to be passionate about food and reducing the amount of food that’s wasted in our society!

About FoodCycle Gloucester
We connect communities, reducing loneliness and food poverty – working with thousands of volunteers and surplus food to help everyone who needs us. By creating welcoming spaces for people from all walks of life to meet, eat and have conversations, and by offering a weekly telephone Check-in and Chat, we are supporting people’s health and mental wellbeing.
By cooking with surplus ingredients, we promote healthy, sustainable attitudes towards food and its impact on the environment, and help people to learn more about healthy food.
We aim to inspire greater change by sharing the impact of our community dining spaces and the voices of our guests to encourage more people to join and support FoodCycle, so we can help more people and more communities.
