Byker Community Centre and their team of hardworking volunteers have been ensuring the local community has access to free meals throughout this challenging time. We spoke to Penny Walters, one of their dedicated volunteers who is committed to supporting the local community.
Every weekday, homemade takeaway meals are provided for anyone in need. There is no requirements to book in advance, simply turn up and collect your meal, to take home.
How can I receive a meal or food parcel?
Simply turn up at the community centre at the collection time below

The FoodCycle team takeover on Thursday evening’s to give the Byker Community Center volunteers a well deserved break. You can find out more about FoodCycle in our previous news post.
On Saturdays local residents can also collect a food parcel of fresh fruit & vegetables and ambient food (tinned goods, pasta, bread etc).
Byker Community Center are able to support the community due to the food they receive from Fareshare, Magic Hat Cafe, and public donations.
