Volunteer Food Pick-Up Cyclists

Details Hide[-]

FoodCycle Bristol distributes surplus food to charities across Bristol. We collect food in bicycle trailers, which easily attach to the rear axel of your bike. An experienced volunteer will meet you at St Pauls Family and Learning centre, where the trailers are stored, and will show you what to do.You will get an email with all the other information you need for the collection a day or two before the event. Collection involves visiting 10 small supermarkets and fruit and veg shops on Gloucester rd and Easton to pick up any surplus food they donate. We then drop it off with one or more charities which will put this food to good use. Our routes are carefully planned to avoid busy roads and hills where possible; we cycle slowly and as a group, please do get in touch if you have any concerns about your ability to take part. Each collection provides around 200 portions, equivalent to one of your 5 a day. Just a couple of hours of your time makes a massive difference to potentially hundreds of people who don't have access to healthy food in Bristol.
