We are delighted to announce the amazing surplus food charity FoodCycle are coming to East Acton and Bubble & Squeak are helping them to do it. 

What is FoodCycle?

FoodCycle serves meals across the country to anybody in the local community by using surplus food cooked in spare kitchen space.  

The weekly sessions provide a space for the community to come together, serving nutritious meals and are led by a strong network of local volunteers.  Combating loneliness, food poverty and putting food that otherwise would have gone to waste to a better use.  

How are Bubble & Squeak helping?

Old Oak Community Centre are going to be their next London hub and first (woo!) West London outpost.  

Bubble & Squeak co-founder Elly has been working in close collaboration with Old Oak Centre, FoodCycle and Old Oak Primary School to set the session up.      

We are also supporting FoodCycle East Acton by providing an innovative storage solution in the form of our crowd-funded shipping container! 

The partnership is a great opportunity to pool resources between Old Oak Centre, Old Oak Primary School and FoodCycle. 

At Bubble & Squeak we love a collaborative approach to overcoming obstacles to make good things happen in our local community - powered (as always) by surplus food. 

How Can You Help?

With their first session starting on the 15th July (with the meal kicking off at 2pm) there are 3 ways you can help: 

1) Please SPREAD THE WORD.  Why not show your support and pop in on a Sunday and extend the invite to someone you know locally who might like to come along? 

2) Give their social media a follow and help generate a buzz:  you can find East Acton's FoodCycle social media accounts here: TWITTER / FACEBOOK / INSTAGRAM

3) Check out their volunteering page.  They are always on the look for new volunteers and sign up is really straightforward. 

Oh and did we mention this session is happening EVERY SINGLE WEEK!?  Even during the school holidays? We are very excited for this to happening and hope to see you there!
