Food Facts Friends Volunteers

Nominated by: Food Facts Friends

The volunteers at Food Facts Friends (FFF) have provided food for the most vulnerable in the community since 2016. They have also risen to the considerable additional challenges and demands of the past year to provide for many others. Working long hours receiving and organising food, making up food bags while following health and safety procedures and doing all the extra cleaning necessary for Covid-19 purposes, they satisfied a huge increase in demand as the closure of other services, furlough and unemployment were felt by the community. Even at the present time, demand is still 4 – 5 times what it was a year earlier, but the FFF volunteers have more than risen to the challenge.
