The regular Monday shift is 6.30-8.30pm but they are flexible if you can only do part of that time. So sign up and do what you can to help.
The volunteer shift comprises of: weighing trays of donated food, sorting mixed donations into food groups, labelling use by dates and stocking shelves ready for the Foodbank service.
Today was the first food sorting mission at the Birmingham City Church of 2021.
Unsurprisingly the donations that the foodbank received were down on the volumes that were coming in just before Christmas. Nevertheless there was still enough to keep us busy for the 2 hours.
Once we had finished weighing and sorting the donations we started dating, which is when Yvette found a jar of Apple, Rudebarb and Ginger conserve which was 9 years past it's Use By date (2012).
At 8.30 we wrapped up (both the tasks and ourselves) and braced ourselves for the cold walk/run home.
With us now being in lockdown, I thought it would be great to have a 'get together' over Zoom.
I received this rather fun game at Xmas, called Shot in The Dark (sadly nothing to do with drinking, but much more fun!) it's really easy to play and will be great over Zoom!
I will send out the Zoom code and password on our WhatsApp group, or otherwise please email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hopefully see you there :)
