A food bank scheme in King Street, Maidenhead received a visit from the High Sheriff of Berkshire.
Suzanna Rose was keen to learn more about how the schemes work and chose Open Kitchen Foodshare as her destination, meeting with founder Sue Brett and volunteers from the charity, which provides non-perishable food for families who are unable to afford a proper meal every day for themselves or their children.
The High Sheriff was given a tour of the facility, learned how the scheme chooses who should receive support and what goes in a typical food parcel.
"I think she chose use because we are slightly different," said Sue. "We try to support in so many different ways."
The visit took place on Friday, August 2.
