FoodCycle Peckham Saturdays



 

Join us at FoodCycle Peckham every Saturday afternoon to cook delicious, vegetarian meals for the local community.                                                              
We have opportunities available for people to come along and cook or to host guests.
 

You don’t need to have any previous cooking experience, although if you do that is just as welcome! We want as many local volunteers as possible and everyone is welcome to be a part of the team!

FoodCycle volunteers are welcoming and committed people who want to create delicious meals and lasting relationships within their community.

You’ll be supported by a FoodCycle Project Leader, who will help make sure the session goes smoothly and is there for any questions you might have, so you don’t have to be a chef to get involved!


Please only sign up to this role if you are sure you can attend. The team is deliberately small to ensure that social distancing is maintained, so if volunteers drop out at short notice we may not be able to deliver our service.

Please note that hosting volunteering is currently undertaken outside. Please ensure you bring appriopriate layers with you.


BEFORE VOLUNTEERING

·       have a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
·       have a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
·    have loss or change to my sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
Most people with coronavirus have at least one of these symptoms.
If 'YES' to any of the above, please do not volunteer. Instead, follow the guidance on NHS website https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

·       wash your hands fully before and after each interaction, or use a hand sanitiser if this is not possible
