Kudos to Mrs. H and (presumably) Mr. !!!
This does warm my heart, it truly does. Maybe more people would do it if they had the possibility - of course it is not always feasible for everyone, for various reasons.
But, there might just be a branch in your area. As for Banque Alimentaire, you can ask at your Mairie.
If you would like (and are able) to have a go, it is usually just for one morning a week (or maybe 2) during the winter campaign (starting about now?) until the end of March. It often means giving out specific food items to specific people, it is all very carefully worked out. It can be fairly hard physically as there is a lot of shifting of boxes etc, especially as the distribution centres are usually unheated (they have to be!), so, get your longjohns and fleeces out. Of course, there are other jobs too, it's not just for sturdy types!!
Sorry to hijack the Banque Alimentaire thread, I just got a little enthusiastic here!
