We were so grateful to have some of the team members from Arch Insurance come to help us at our Nechells depot last week!
Madhi, Steve and Imran joined us in the warehouse to provide essential help in prepping the day’s food deliveries.
They weren’t afraid to roll their sleeves up and get involved, spending the day fulfilling food orders to go out to communities across the Midlands who need it most. They were able to gain first-hand experience of how FareShare Midlands tackles the huge problem of food waste and food poverty… while we benefitted from three extra pairs of hands getting the job done!
“We felt welcome from the moment we got here, and it was so great to work together outside of the office environment!” Steve said. Imran added how enjoyable and eye-opening they found the day, stating that “the variety and amount of food here is quite surprising… it has made me realise we don’t quite know the full life cycle of food”.
Volunteers like Madhi, Steve and Imran are vital to keeping FareShare working. We look forward to hopefully welcoming more staff from Arch Insurance to help at our food distribution centres.
