Volunteers’ Week 2024

Volunteers’ Week 2024 ran from 3rd to 9th June and is a time to say thank you for the fantastic contribution volunteers make.
We asked some of the organisations we work with to tell us what they think about the Food etc volunteers who work with them and to say we’ve been bowled over (and also quite emotional) about the responses is an understatement.
Here is a small selection of what people said:
“The volunteers who attend our school and run the fabulous Food Etc sessions are easy-going, capable and generous with their time. Always cheerful and bright, they bring a real energy to the sessions and make everyone feel welcome and involved. Life without these selfless superstars would be a much sadder place.”
“The Food etc volunteer who is working with our school is amazing. She has run two courses for us and is great at engaging with the families. She is enthusiastic and brings with her a passion for cooking and learning new skills. Thank you.”
“Food etc’s lovely kind volunteers have really helped us make use of our new Food Tech area this year. The families they have worked with have been full of enthusiasm and joy – and we are envious of the lovely treats and meals created in partnership with their children! We hope they will continue to work with us in the future and we appreciate the team very much indeed!”
“Food etc chefs are brilliant people with a passion for nutritious food and healthy eating habits. They give their time, skills and expertise generously and our participants have gained enormously. Thank you all!”
“Food etc volunteers have been running the Family Cooking Club at our school over several terms. They have been fantastic and supported our families in developing healthy habits when cooking at home. They have got to know the parents well and built good relationships with them. Every week, they have committed themselves to supporting our school and we are very grateful for their time.”
“The Food etc volunteer who is working with our school is amazing. She has run two courses for us and is great at engaging with the families. She is enthusiastic and brings with her a passion for cooking and learning new skills. Thank you.”
“Our clients have massively benefited from the cooking experience with Food etc. They have learned to eat healthily and it has inspired some of the clients to cook creatively for themselves at home. The staff from Food etc are fantastic at bringing fun as well as recipes with them as they enter the building!’
“The Food etc volunteers were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and approachable. They created a positive and relaxed environment where our children felt comfortable, learned new skills and most importantly, cooked delicious food!”
“I have been so impressed with the quality of the Food etc volunteers who have worked with us. They are people who are passionate about food but clearly also passionate about making a difference in the lives of people. Thank you to all the volunteers for sharing your skill and heart with us all!”
