Volunteer story – Brenda

5th June 2024

This week marks Volunteers Week a chance to showcase and thank our wonderful volunteers who dedicate their time and energy and who collectively keep the operation of Slough Foodbank going at what is our busiest ever time. In fact, if all rotas are filled, it takes around 82 volunteers a week to keep us running.


During volunteers week we’re celebrating our volunteers, highlighting the different volunteer roles available at Slough Foodbank and sharing volunteer stories. Today we’re hearing from Brenda – a home delivery volunteer.


How long have you been volunteering at Slough Foodbank?
I’ve been volunteering about 3 years I think.


What’s your favourite thing about volunteering at Slough Foodbank?
I love watching the relief and pleasure on people’s faces when they receive their food bags when I deliver them. Nobody wants to go hungry or know they cannot provide for their family.


Last year we provided 11,300 food parcels to people in Slough and the surrounding areas who were facing a food poverty crisis.
