On Monday 29 October, student-led project FoodCycle cooked their first meal of the academic year.

The cooking session took place at Kensington Methodist Church, where volunteer project leaders took 11.3kg of surplus food from Sainsbury’s and cooked a delicious three-course meal for over 20 people.

The menu consisted of cheesy garlic bread with a sour cream and chive dip for starters, spicy vegetable curry with naan bread for the mains, and a dessert of white and milk chocolate cornflake cakes.

The next cooking session will take place on Monday 5 November at 9am. For more information about how to get involved, or to volunteer at the next session, click here.

FoodCycle is a national charity that operates in 15 hubs across the country. It takes surplus food from supermarkets and other local businesses, and transforms the ingredients into nutritious meals for people in the community affected by food poverty.
