Teresa Milligan first entered Armley Junktion in June 2014 when looking for work whilst on Job Seekers Allowance. After speaking with Adam Smith (founder), and him explaining the concept, she decided to become a volunteer until she found work. In October 2014 she became co director at Armley Junktion. In June 2015 Teresa became the first member of the team to be paid a wage. Speaking of TRJFP she says “After just a week of volunteering I knew it was a special place to be and it was something I wanted to be part of. Not only was it tackling the environmental side of food waste but was also making an impact on the social side of things which has become important to the residents of Armley”
