Beverley’s Story

“My husband passed away just over a year ago. We were happily married for 55 years.

Peter* cooked delicious meals by himself and by my side. Some of my happiest memories are of us cooking together in the kitchen. Never fancy food but always lots of meat and veggies. His stir-fries cannot be replicated, as he took the recipes with him and he was the master of delicious sauces.

Foodbank has helped us through times of financial and family stress, and loss. I can still count on a welcome smile and a laugh when I visit, which makes a big difference to my day.
Since Foodbank has recently introduced the hampers of dry, frozen, fresh produce, there has been a need for gratitude and creativity. I love the mystery and surprise of bulk packs. With my own ingenuity and some online inspiration I can make meals tasty, nutritious and within my tight budget.

You see I can’t imagine my life without Foodbank. So thank you all for making a big difference. Those on duty now and those who have had to self-isolate, please stay safe.”
