It all happened on Friday 23rd November at St Judes Church in Southsea: FoodCycle Portsmouth served up a delicious three-course dinner for 113 guests starting with canapes and drinks at the bar and live music; dinner, a fabulous prize draw and finishing with sweet treats.
Just over £2,600 was raised to help FoodCycle Portsmouth continue their work in feeding members of the community; collecting, using and redistributing surplus food; tackling food poverty and bringing communities together through a shared meal and experience.
FoodCycle Portsmouth work with some of the community’s most needy members and is run by a host of volunteers who fulfil many different functions from driving the FoodCycle van (huge cost to insure and run), prepping meals, serving dinner, coordinating volunteers - and in particular university volunteers, liaising with supermarkets and independent suppliers, managing social media, marketing and promotions, fundraising … and it goes on! A massive team with enormous will, drive and commitment.
