Who volunteers – case studies

Jeane is a student studying Dietetics:

I volunteer with CFINE one day a week helping to run cooking on a budget courses at Cook at the 'Nook, which is a fantastic community training kitchen. I'm really enjoying coming up with new recipes and it's really rewarding knowing that you are helping people.

Andrew worked offshore for years but was made redundant last year:

I've been with CFINE for a few weeks now, working on stock rotation, and warehouse duties. I'm hoping the experience will help build my CV and get me back into work. The folk in the warehouse are great and we have a right laugh!

Maureen is a retired nurse:

“Volunteering is really worthwhile. I have been helping to run the food bank and it's been a real eye-opener. I had seen food banks on the news and I wanted to do my bit. It's shocking that we live in one of the biggest economies in the world and yet there is still hunger.
