As a Hosting Volunteer you’ll be working with the rest of the hosting team to create a warm, welcoming environment for our guests. By serving our guests a free, delicious meal and sharing in conversation, you'll be helping to reduce hunger and loneliness in your community. You’ll be supported by a FoodCycle Project Leader, who will help you to develop your hosting skills. You don’t need to have any previous experience – you just need to get stuck in!
A FoodCycle Project is where the magic happens. Each Project is run on the ground by a team of lead volunteers called Project Leaders, who ensure the smooth running of their FoodCycle Project. Project Leaders are passionate, committed and want to make a positive change within their community. They take ownership and make decisions about the day-to-day running of their Project
Teamwork: you’ll work as part of a team to prep the venue, serve a delicious meal, and clear up afterwards.
Relationship building: you'll build lasting relationships with guests, ensuring they come back each week.
Hosting: you’ll support front of house duties, serving food and demonstrating good customer service skills.
Fundraising: you’ll have the opportunity to participate in fundraising activities, like pop ups and sponsored challenges, to help raise vital funds to support your Project.
