Volunteering at Just Zilch

ESOL Intensive

Packets of instant noodles were flying around as the ESOL Intensive group from ELP Palmerston North volunteered at the warehouse of Just Zilch.

Just Zilch is a very successful Food Rescue and Free Store in Palmerston North and it already has about 90 volunteers but they still need help in the warehouse to get the food ready to distribute to the customers.

To start, Victoria the warehouse manager gave a short safety briefing and the class introduced themselves to her. After that, there really wasn’t a huge amount of idle chatter as everyone was concentrating on getting the job done.

Henry gave us some helpful pointers and Makareta and other team members were friendly and encouraging.  A very inclusive vibe.

Thanks to Victoria and her team for making us feel welcome and useful, and to Helen for arranging this opportunity.  This is great work experience in a warehouse, and the learners enjoy giving back to the community. They are all very keen to go back again next week.
