Our Volunteers:

Without whom 0800 Hungry could not function. There are around 20 dedicated volunteers who give unselfishly of their time to ensure the food parcels are ready for distribution. 0800 is also blessed by large teams who come in one week a month from the Reform Churches and Gospel Way Outreach. There are other youth groups who visit on a less frequent basis and weekly visits by students from Ferndale School and the Helen Anderson Trust.
