I always wanted to do something a bit more meaningful. I went back to study logistics and supply chain management. A job opportunity came up at Foodbank and that’s how I joined. It’s been five years now.
I’ve been working in the business since I was 15. I always knew I wanted to run the business one day. My dad’s a third generation butcher, so he’s always been into food. Sharing food was always a big thing in my family.
I came here seven years ago. I’d been a full-time carer for my mother and my brother. When they passed away I looked at myself and I said, ‘What am I going to do now?’ It’s worked out rather well, really.
Foodbank gives ingredients to make a difference – an entrée to achieve cohesion and understanding, the base to a recipe for harmony and a means to create a menu that will nourish the needs of those it is serving.
