Well what a busy day. Thanks to Donna for kicking it off with my first podcast and also helping me find 4months parking for my car.

Most asylum families are in transit camps although I am told the food can be awful. E.g. rotten or old veg being used etc

The service users are a friendly lot. For most it’s their only meal of the day.
Fate? πŸ˜‚ The charities car broke down last night. They can’t afford to fix it so I emptied mine and it’s now the Food transport van until Sunday night but they have no idea where to find the money to fix their car☹

We had a heck of a job fitting 270 plus meals in my car πŸ˜‚

Waiting patiently for assessment and or treatment

It was a tight squeeze in my car

One tray of hot food had to be carried on this volunteers lap in the front seat!

Trolley load of food being taken to my car.

Philoxenia means a love for strangers and highlights the true generosity of spirit.

A big thank you to all the team their passion, generosity and energy for others who have so little is heart warming and good for my soul. 😁
