Hope for Food was introduced to me by my Daughter who wanted to donate to a good cause last Christmas instead of buying and receiving Christmas presents.
She signed up as a volunteer supplying sandwiches and cakes at the weekly soup kitchen. Her experience was so positive I decided to become a volunteer myself.
We both prepare and serve food weekly to the people who turn up for food, it has become a pleasure to be involved and see the difference first hand offering a hot meal can make to an individual who may not have access to the simple things we all take for granted.
I consider it was an incredibly brave step the founder of Hope for Food took, setting up a charity to help those people in society who are struggling to provide themselves with basic needs. It must have taken a huge commitment of time and energy, she stood up and did what most of us just think about.
Becoming a volunteer is incredibly rewarding and has enabled me to contribute to those who need help and I am grateful to Hope for Food for giving me the opportunity and medium in which to do so.
