Mick Hubbard - Milton Keynes Food Bank
Mick works as a Training Coordinator at John Lewis & Partners Distribution Centre in Milton Keynes and has been with the Partnership for over 20 years. He volunteered for six months at the Milton Keynes Food Bank, going out to collect food, making up and distributing food parcels and helping to raise awareness of the charity.
“It’s a very worthwhile charity and an ever growing problem, not just in Milton Keynes, but UK-wide. It’s so important to help, but it can be upsetting - I have brought colleagues along to help, who have said the experience has been eye-opening.”
“Many years ago I experienced homelessness myself and there was no such support available. I know many people who have needed a food bank, so I really wanted to give back. If you’re thinking about volunteering, don’t do what I did, which is think about it for years, just go and apply!”
