Established in 2016, Live True London now includes a successful collection of salons across top London locations such as Brixton, Clapham, Vauxhall and Soho.
With a mission to empower others at the very heart of Live True’s ethos, the partnership with FoodCycle comes as a natural fit, and – with the ongoing cost-of-living crisis – at a time when people need more help than ever.
FoodCycle was started in 2009 with the aim of connecting communities and reducing loneliness and food poverty – working with thousands of volunteers and surplus food to help as many people as possible.
Last year, the volunteer-led charity cooked and served hundreds of thousands of meals to people in dozens of local communities, as well as saving hundreds of tonnes of food from going to waste.
From May 2023 onwards, Live True London will be offering a ‘FoodCycle Charity Treatment & Blow Dry’ at all salons as part of their signature menu. From every £75 hair treatment and blow dry service, £10 will be donated to FoodCycle, helping to provide meals to the hungry and build a community for the lonely.
Valerie Maine, founder of Live True says,
“Building a sense of community and empowering others is at the heart of our values at Live True London, so we’re really pleased to be able to support FoodCycle in all the fantastic work they do. Initiatives like these are so important to help those who need it through increasingly difficult times, and we’re excited to be able to offer our customers a way to give back whilst they self-care at our salons.”
FoodCycle CEO Mary McGrath MBE adds,
“We are thrilled to have the support of Live True as our new charity partner, introducing FoodCycle to their wonderful community. As the cost-of-living crisis continues to hit people hard across the country our service is more vital than ever and we are grateful that they can help us provide a warm space, friendly chat and a nutritious meal to anyone who needs it every week, no questions asked.”
