Richard Kennell, CEO at SOFEA: “We were delighted and honoured to host their Majesties King Charles and Queen Camilla. Their visit was to launch the Coronation Food Project with our partners FareShare. I was really pleased they spoke to so many youngsters because at SOFEA, that's what we do.

“Their Majesties met a range of our warehouse staff, but also some young people working in the kitchen and some of our the rest of our team and it was a great opportunity for those members of staff and volunteers to talk to Their Majesties about what they do and what a difference SOFEA makes in their lives.”
