Malak Benashur, Manchester Met Student

“MetMUnch feels like a community you enjoy being in rather than a job.

When I started I worked voluntarily for MetMUnch. I was keen to attend all meeting and events, because you find yourself pulled towards it out of excitement everytime. We had many fun events and activities. I have learnt a lot about the kitchen and time constraints and how to make a lot out of a little bit of resources.

More importantly I found out nothing was impossible after making 2,000 soups on a winter’s day at Hulme Park. I experimented a lot, tasted things I’d never eaten, such as pineapples and mangoes, and learnt to love them.

Being on the MetMUnch team is very rewarding and there is a huge spirit within the enterprise.”
