One Million Meals to feed keyworkers ’till the nation heals’Advertisement
Your keyworkers on the frontline are collapsing due to longer hours and absence of hot/ nutritious meals… – One Million Meals
A charitable initiative is aiming to feed a million frontline staff and keyworkers at the heart of the UK’s fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
One Million Meals is seeking to deliver even more free nutritious meals to NHS staff, police and council workers being “left with empty stomachs” after “gruelling and long-hour shifts”.
While “thousands of meals have already been served”, donations are now being requested to meet “the rising demands at the NHS, medical trusts, police and relevant agencies and institutions looking after the vulnerable people”.
Speaking of the stark reality, the initiative’s donation page reveals: “Your keyworkers on the frontline are collapsing due to longer hours and absence of hot/ nutritious meals at the odd hours they are working to save us all.”
With 100% of donations going towards the making of meals, almost £11k of the £50,000 target has already been raised since their Go Fund Me page went live a few days ago.
“Help us feed the keyworkers at the frontline – whether you can sponsor one meal for £5 or one thousand meals- you are equally important to us. Every little helps – in defeating the Covid19 pandemic, together,” the initiative added.
Halal restaurant brand Spice Village, who is sponsoring the project, told FtLion that was needed now is “lots of food restaurant from all over UK to support @onemillionmeals campaign to feed the NHS and frontline workers”.
One Million Meals has confirmed increasing demand for meals from hospitals across the country including Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Coventry Hospital, Leicester Royal Infirmary, Birmingham City Hospital, Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust and many more.
