Food Train Founder Jean Mundell MBE commemorated in Dumfries

Involved from idea to reality Jean Mundell MBE played a starring role in the early years of Food Train.  Her drive and determination were legendary and Food Train's survival through tough early years were mainly down to Jean's tenacity.  Failing health made it difficult for her to be as involved in her latter years but she kept a watchful eye and remained active in setting the strategic direction of the Charity right up to her death in 2006.  Food Train were thrilled to learn that Jean had been selected by a community vote to be commemorated forever with a portrait bench in Dumfries alongside JM Barrie (creater of Peter Pan) and Kirkpatrick McMillan (inventor of the bicycle).  It was with great pride that staff, volunteers and members past and present joined together to see the unveiling of the bench.  Jean would be enourmously proud to be honoured this way and would be delighted with the progress Food Train is making all over Scotland.
