In August I spent some time with FoodCycle helping with and documenting the great work they do. You can read about my time with them here. They are currently taking part in Natwest CommunityForce and are in with the chance of winning £6,000 which they would use to sustain the current lunches they do by buying the extra ingredients they need, better kitchen equipment and a food trailer for collecting all the surplus food. It will also give them the opportunity to expand the project further by hiring a second kitchen so that they can cook more meals for those in need in Cambridge and save even more food from ending up in landfills.
Did you know that 18 million tonnes of edible food ends up in landfills every year. FoodCycle help the community by using the food that would otherwise end up there by feeding those in food poverty whilst educating and spreading the word about food waste. Experts claim that by eliminating this waste from the US and UK alone could lift more than a billion people out of hunger worldwide.
I (and they) would really appreciate it if you could take 2 minutes out of your time to vote from them. Its such a fantastic cause and would help them to continue doing what they do. You can vote from them here
Thanks in advance!
