Last summer I wrote a post about how my local community food shop works HERE Today I had my first online induction session to join them as a volunteer in the fabulous work they do to make sure as much food as possible doesn't go to waste. 😀😀😀
I've volunteered to work a few evenings a week to drive the above van (it's electric!) round the supermarkets and collect their excess food that would otherwise go to waste. Sometimes it's a few crates of fruit and veg, sometimes it can be as much as 20!! On today's FB page they've just posted they have 12 frozen ducks available for collection tomorrow (bring your own bag!) 😂 Last Friday they had 6 large birthday cakes. 🎂 No questions asked, if you can use it up you can have it.
I also learned about the various small local community food groups that prepare free meals/food to distribute to families. One of them operates in my school's catchment area so I hope to get involved with them too.
Really excited and looking forward to my next induction day on Friday where I'm going to the hub to see how all the projects are run. 😎
