Cooking Volunteer

About the role

FoodCycle volunteers are welcoming and committed people who want to create delicious meals and lasting relationships within their community. As a Cooking Volunteer, you’ll support the team in creating recipe ideas, help with the preparation of food and the cooking of the meal.

You’ll be supported by a FoodCycle Project Leader, who will help make sure the session goes smoothly and is there for any questions you might have, so you don’t have to be a chef to get involved!


What’s expected from me 

  • Have bags of enthusiasm
  • Follow all FoodCycle policies and procedures – including the volunteer agreement
  • Follow all training you receive when registering with us
  • Support FoodCycle to fulfil its aim of nourishing communities using surplus food!

Time commitment: Give as much as you feel! It is easy to volunteer with FoodCycle and we don’t look for minimum commitments, but love it if you keep coming back! An average cooking volunteer slot is 4 hours.
