Volunteer Voices: Spotlight on Stephanie Chadwick

27th March 2024

In our latest “Volunteer Voices,” we’re thrilled to introduce Stephanie Chadwick, a remarkable individual whose life journey brought her from a globe-trotting corporate career to the heart of Chichester’s community service. Stephanie’s unique blend of experiences, from her international travels to her early years in a single-parent family benefiting from social services, deeply influenced her decision to volunteer with the Chichester District Foodbank.

Joining Chichester District Foodbank as a Signposter and quickly becoming a Trustee, Stephanie’s roles are vital in directly supporting clients and steering the foodbank’s mission forward. Her work on reception and engaging conversations with clients highlight the critical impact of kindness and direct support.

Stephanie’s journey is marked by a profound appreciation for the foodbank’s evolving services, which now include on-site agency support and family sessions, enriching the community’s fabric. Her commitment as a volunteer is driven by a belief in the foodbank’s mission beyond food distribution—to end food poverty and build a stronger, more supportive community.

Her story is a testament to the transformative power of volunteering, not only for the recipients of the foodbank’s services but also for the volunteers themselves. Stephanie’s insights into the importance of understanding, non-judgment, and confidentiality in dealing with clients resonate deeply, reflecting the core values of CDFB.

As Stephanie continues to learn and contribute to the foodbank’s efforts, her story serves as an inspiring reminder of how individual actions can weave together to create a stronger, more compassionate community. Thank you, Stephanie, for your dedication, and for reminding us of the significant impact volunteering can have on both individuals and the broader community.

If Stephanie’s journey inspires you, and you’re interested in making a difference in your community, we’d love to hear from you. Please consider volunteering with us.
