In detail

FoodCycle, a British non-profit organisation founded in 2009 aims to feed those who are socially marginalised by collecting surplus food. They run 2 programmes: the Hubs and the Community Café. Today there are 16 Hubs in England. These are centres which train volunteers to gather surplus food and to prepare meals in kitchens donated for use.

The organisation also manages a Community Café in Bromley-by-Bow in London, the aim of which is to help members of the local community with their professional integration plans.

History of partnership

In 2013, FoodCycle was supported by the Societe Generale Foundation for Solidarity with the Pie in the Sky project. Through its Community Café, the British organisation trains those who are disadvantaged in Bromley-by-Bow in catering and hospitality. The beneficiaries follow a 3 to 6 month course. The programme is based on an assessment of the motivations and goals of each volunteer who follows a training course held within the café which is open 5 days out of 7, in cooking, nutrition, customer relations and counter service.
