Just Zilch, the city’s free food char­ity, has turned 6 and what a pro­duc­tive six years it has been.

While it’s sad to know that this is a vol­un­teer ser­vice or­gan­i­sa­tion that is re­ally needed here in Palmer­ston North, and even more dis­cour­ag­ing to see the need in­creas­ing, it’s a re­lief to know that our com­mu­nity has ac­cess to this won­der­ful char­ity.

It’s peo­ple like Just Zilch founder Re­becca Cul­ver, and all the vol­un­teers in­volved, that we re­ally have to thank for their hard work and ded­i­ca­tion.

This week is Na­tional Vol­un­teer Week and it seems an apt time to be cel­e­brat­ing the mark or­gan­i­sa­tions like this have made on our com­mu­nity.

There are many or­gan­i­sa­tions, ser­vices and events that sim­ply wouldn’t ex­ist or hap­pen with­out vol­un­teers.

So thank you to all of those who ded­i­cate their time to im­prov­ing our com­mu­nity and mak­ing it a great place to live.
