Alongside our generous customers and dedicated vendor partners, we've delivered over 100,000 meals to key workers and vulnerable communities through our #FeedYourCommunity project.
In March 2020, we launched the #FeedYourCommunity initiative to help support key workers, vulnerable communities, and our vendor partners, who were all experiencing the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, the project has delivered over 100,000 meals!
When the COVID-19 pandemic initially hit the UK and the country went into lockdown, we knew that we needed to do something to help the people affected by it. So, we set up #FeedYourCommunity to provide meals to people who needed them. Using donations from our generous customers, we were able to send business to our vendor partners, empowering them to create delicious food for a great cause.
Sands Catering is one of those vendor partners and has played an integral role in the project, making over 16,000 meals for NHS hospitals, food banks and shelters across London.
"The #FeedYourCommunity meal deliveries have been the most wonderful lifeline throughout the past year.
For us here at Sands Catering the scheme has helped us enormously to keep the wheels of our business turning whilst in the knowledge that we have in our own small way contributed something really positive to helping our community", says Mireille from Sands Catering.
So, whether it's a pick-me-up for those working tirelessly in NHS hospitals or meals for people who are struggling to get food on the table during a particularly challenging time, #FeedYourCommunity is there to help.
Since March 2020, we've worked with 45 restaurants, caterers, and food businesses to deliver meals and sweet treats to over 100 organisations, charities, and shelters around London. And we're not stopping at 100,000 meals - there's still plenty more to come.
