Our Impact So Far.
In just 2 years, our achievement to date includes; 40 employment outcomes both directly and indirectly for women of refugee & migrant backgrounds, 31,174 donated meals, and we’re just getting started.
"This is my first job, and I feel very lucky to have such a beautiful job with this team. I have been learning a lot, and this helped me find more work. Meals with Impact helps us as women to support our families"
"This is my first job working in a kitchen. Before Meals with Impact I worked for many years in a factory, now I love working with food. I lost my job in the pandemic, and many people told me I was too old to find a new job. Now I feel confident, and I am learning new things every day"
"I love this job, and I love my team. We are like a family, we all understand each other. I have made friends from all different countries and cultures, and I have learnt so much. This job is very different to others when we work there is no stress. When we work here we feel confident and free."
“I am learning so much every day – I love talking with my team and improving my English. We are always smiling and laughing together.”
