Metro Bank colleague helps cook for the homeless

The British Community Bank, Metro Bank, gives every colleague a day to amaze – basically a paid day off to support a local charity or charity. Metro Bank colleague Andrea Gallo spent her Day to Amaze preparing meals for up to 60 homeless people around London’s St Pancras.

Harrow resident Andrea worked for FEAST With Us. Based in Camden and Islington, FEAST With Us is a registered charity whose mission is to provide regular access to nutritious meals, nutrition education and skills to people experiencing food poverty. The meals are made from surplus food that would otherwise be thrown out. Each week, the charity prepares about 600 meals for those who need them, delivering about 200 meals a week by car, bike and on foot.

“During the day I’m an money laundering investigator, so it was great to spend a working day doing something so completely different, but just as worthwhile,” explained Andrea Gallo, Metro Bank AML Investigator. “I love that Metro Bank lets us support something we are really passionate about. Eating is a basic human right and I enjoyed the day making lunch and dinner and serving meals to the guests at a hostel for single homeless people near St. Pancras. ”
