Mark is a volunteer warehouse assistant and came to us after volunteering at Lunch Positive, a community food member FareShare provides food to. His favourite thing about volunteering is meeting new people from different backgrounds and making new friends.

I haven’t had it easy being mixed race, brought up in care and gay, I’m proud of making it to 61 laughing all the way. I feel proud of what I do here – I’m learning all the time, finding out different things.

The variety of projects is fascinating and meeting the people on the receiving end of this food brings me joy.
