On Tuesday 14th May Donna Hall, Account Manager and Zoe McGillivray-Hackett, Client Manager Team leader from our Telford office were lucky enough to spend the day giving something back to the community of Coventry by volunteering at FareShare delivering food to five community centres in the Coventry area.
The day started at 8:30 am at the depot where food is delivered by the supermarkets to FareShare who then pick and pack the donated food into orders for their CFM’s (Community Food Member’s).
These CFM’s pay a small fee and send in a wish list and FareShare provide them with 80 kilos of food. Last year, Zoe spent the day in the warehouse but this time she was able to go out in the delivery van and see where the food goes and meet some of the recipients.
Donna and Zoe met Rosa in her kitchen at a community centre where she was cooking macaroni cheese for 40 hungry children in the nursery. She was thrilled to see the crates of food that Zoe and Donna delivered to her.
Zoe commented "It was great fun and I would encourage anyone to do this, it gives you a great feeling and reminds you to be thankful, as these people are so grateful that you give them your time".
