Become a Member

Thank you for your kind support for FoDK. We offer all our supporters, whether you are a financial donor, volunteer food deliverer, maker, or giver, the opportunity to become a member.

As you may know Friends of Di’s Kitchen came about in honour of our friend Dianne Henry who used to manage a team of volunteers to make and serve a healthy 3-course meal each Thursday at the Tabernacle Baptist Church for anyone in need of sustenance, be it physical, mental or spiritual.

Our dear friend Di sadly passed away in October 2018 and that original service eventually moved first to St Andrew’s Church in Whitmore Reans but is now operating as a delivery service from our team leader’s 5-star rated kitchen in Penn.  Jan Kellond now runs the service with some of the original volunteers but many more new volunteers and donors. The aim is still the same, to serve a healthy balanced meal to our guests each Thursday. Of course what a crazy year it’s been. Numbers have grown and grown and what was previously catering for 60 guests weekly has grown to over 600 across the city per week. We could never have predicted such an increase and it certainly offers some challenges!

 

This larger service takes quite some planning and a lot of goodwill; we are always amazed by people’s generosity and kindness.  So, THANK YOU!
