Black Friday 2023
For the past four years, we’ve supported a number of charities and causes that we care about over the Black Friday weekend…
We recognise that times are even harder for everyone this year, which is why we’ll be supporting FoodCycle, a charity that transforms surplus food into meals for anyone that needs them.
How will we help FoodCycle?
Instead of offering further discounts over Black Friday weekend, we’ll be supporting Foodcycle in an effort to help those most affected by the cost of living crisis. In December 2022, 68% of FoodCycle guests said they can’t afford to buy the food they need, with 79% predicting their financial situation will get worse in 2023 – figures that shouldn’t be ignored.
By donating to FoodCycle, we aim to support the essential work they do in using surplus food to cook healthy, delicious meals for those that find themselves in difficult situations. FoodCycle offers a safe, warm space to enjoy a free cooked meal and company, helping to make food poverty, loneliness and food waste a thing of the past.
What can you do to help?
FoodCycle has lots of locations all across the UK, and they’re always looking for volunteers – they’d be really grateful for any time you could spare. Equally, there are loads of fundraising and donation opportunities, which you can find out more about below.
