Launched by LEON Founder, John Vincent and actors Damian Lewis, Helen McCrory and Matt Lucas, FeedNHS is a campaign aimed at delivering meals to NHS teams on the front line, many of whom have little access to nutritious food on a 12-hour shift.
We teamed up with FeedNHS and Mealforce, providing a central coordination role for the campaign. Our amazing teams up and down the country have been working hard to develop menus to create nutritious meals and through the BaxterStorey Foundation, supplying 40,000 free meals every day to NHS staff across 90 hospitals.
Our teams in Slough worked from the WePrepare kitchens to produce over meals which were delivered to hospitals including the Royal Marsden, St George’s, Basingstoke and North Hampshire, Kings College, and Nightingale, ExCel. HRH the Countess of Wessex made a surprise visit to the production kitchen to help the team produce delicious meals for NHS hospitals.
Our London Food Team delivered food first aid kits direct from their homes. The team of six lifted the spirits of front-line staff across London, Essex, Hampshire and Surrey, delivering 11,000 fresh meals to emergency and community centres, NHS hospitals and food banks.
We are immensely proud of our teams across the UK and are honoured to be providing much needed support to our NHS. We have received a huge number of messages of support, including from Matt Lucas, Damian Lewis and Helen McCrory.
Great food is what we do does best and the support from our clients and colleagues has enabled us to increase the volume of free meals available to heroic front-line staff.
