Volunteering at Homeless Birmingham Soup Kitchen
This was an eye-opening experience for us, by the time we arrived at 6pm there was already a queue of about 50 people waiting for food.
We were handed our rubber gloves and we got stuck into helping the team of volunteers. Sophie was helping out on the stew and bread and I was pouring out cups of squash and handing out wrapped sandwiches, that they could take away for later.
We met an inspiring man called Kenneth who cooks all the food from scratch, he and his partner had prepared some lovely hot stews, hot pots and noodle soups they even had cakes and crumble for dessert!
Kenneth also had bags of donated clothes and blankets which he handed out.
