Volunteer story – Alison

7th 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 Alison- a home delivery volunteer.


How long have you been volunteering at Slough Foodbank?
I have been volunteering at Slough Foodbank for 18 months


What’s your favourite thing about volunteering at Slough Foodbank?
I feel that I make a difference, as I deliver to those who aren’t able to get to a distribution centre. The volunteers and staff at Slough Foodbank are lovely and made me feel welcome from day one.


What’s a fun/interesting fact about you that we might not know?
I love walking and recently completed a 58km walk along the Jurassic Coast, starting at Corfe Castle and finishing in Weymouth.


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