Mike has been with us for just over a month so we caught up with him to see how he was getting on.
“I have now been in my new role for over four weeks and I am loving working at Brighton Food Bank. Having been in work for over 30 years, this is the best job ever! It is extremely special to work in a Christian environment.
The volunteers we have are truly amazing. It would be great to add to our food bank volunteer team. I would be delighted to show people, who are interested in volunteering with us, around the food bank so they can see if it is a working environment that would suit them.
I have been amazed by how generous our supporters have been, from church congregations to individuals giving via supermarkets or just ringing our door bell.
Our clients are very special people, all of whom have been referred by agencies. We fully appreciate how difficult it is for our clients to come to us and therefore we want them to feel extra special during the time they are with us.
There are lots of plans in place to take Brighton Food Bank forward. The more people who understand what and why we do things, the greater the chance of really being able to help those most in need in Brighton and Hove.”
