Feeding communities

Homestart-Dundee were successfully awarded an Asda Foundation Feeding Communities grant of £600 to make up food hampers to families in the DD3 postcode.

Estelle, from the charity, got in touch and asked if I would help her put the hampers together in store – and I was only too happy to help out, while abiding by social distancing guidelines of course. We borrowed a home shopping trolley and went shopping, packing the hampers with fruit, vegetables, meat and poultry. The families were delighted with their surprise parcels and Homestart were incredibly grateful to have had the money to give this to their families. Knowing I work for a company that really does take their role in the community seriously, I feel very proud to be their stepping stone to getting the help to where it's needed the most.
