A Word from our volunteers

    “I have previously used the services of the foodbank which really
    helped me during a tough period. I wanted to volunteer and give
    something back to those less fortunate than me. As a mother of 7
    children it allows me take a break and socialise with those in my
    community and fellow volunteers”


    “Due to changing jobs I had a more flexible work pattern and so I was able to give some time to the Foodbank. Firstly through the occasional delivery driving during lock down and then more regularly at the warehouse. It is great fun working with the team, volunteers and staff to do something practical to bless others in the town of Dover.”


    “I spend most of my time working with very little sense of doing something productive. Volunteering at the foodbank gives me a purpose to give back to the community.


    “I started volunteering to help with deliveries post-Covid when Foodbank weren’t open. Two years later, I now help sorting donations at our warehouse and also offer admin support. It’s great to be part of a team that helps local people through a difficult time. We are kept busy but we also have time for a chat and a laugh and I really enjoy my shift!”
