We would rather know there wasn’t a need for foodbanks and that all our fellow citizens where able to support themselves and their families without them. However, as this is not the case, we are proud to offer this service to support our clients with the international food they need to cook their culture’s dishes and the flavours they are accustomed to.
Since the start of this service in January, on a busy week we have been supporting up to 17 families and individuals who’s smile tell us how important this service has become to them.
“I can always count on you guys to keep me going when everyone else lets me down”
Thanks to the initiative of one of our wonderful volunteers, and to the “RA-C woman’s group” she runs, we are able to donate lovely reusable bags with the food we distribute. The bags are made with old bedding and curtains that would otherwise go to landfill. So, a virtuous circle of upcycling, women supporting others, and kindness all round!
This week one of our client told us “I can always count on you guys to keep me going when everyone else lets me down”.
