Together, this coalition is now delivering 40,000 meals a day to 88 hospitals in Greater London, Manchester, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Cardiff and others nationwide
And in ten days you manage to donate an amazing one million pounds allowing us to not just take meals straight from kitchens to London hospitals, but to other hospitals across the country. And now we’ve joined forces with other teams looking to feed hospital workers in these difficult times and the demand has rocketed. We now need to reach two million to allow us to keep the good work going.
As NHS staff began working longer hours and surrounding restaurants and cafés shut it became difficult for frontline staff to feed themselves. Your money is allowing us to take the food directly to them and their gratitude and response has been as overwhelming as your donations, which have come flooding in. Here are just some of the messages of thanks and photographs that have been sent to us over the past few weeks.
Big love back to Leon from UCLH critical care… so thoughtful, it’s so appreciated!!! A million thanks 🙏😷
We had so many happy customers today. They really loved the lamb moussaka and were so grateful to get the food for free
Many thanks from the Hammersmith Hospital therapies! Delicious food!
We started in London but thanks to the publics generosity and our partners, we have now been able to roll this campaign out nationwide , thank you. Our phones haven’t stopped ringing with requests from hospitals but luckily your donations haven’t stopped coming in, just look where your money has gone toward so far .
The brilliant Matt Lucas has re-recorded his popular Baked Potato song to remind us what we need to know, but in the happiest of ways. You can listen on the link and also buy this exclusive single, helping us raise even more money and so serve even more meals to NHS staff.
There are many workers who are not in hospitals but are doing valued work every day. We have delivered tea, coffee, cups and snack supplies to London Ambulance depot in Southwark and scones to paramedics in Newcastle. We are helping distribute a generous donation of 40,000 Nature Valley bars donated by General Mills to clinics and test centres, as well as hospitals, across the country too. We are also sending lunches to test centre staff in Glasgow.
