The indomitable human spirit will see us through this current situation. Let’s be kind to others and care for our community. – British Bangladeshi Catering Association

Elderly people in self-isolation can order a free nutritious meal thanks to a scheme kickstarted by the British Bangladeshi Catering Association (BBCA).

While subject to availability, these meals are available for collection on a first come first served basis by calling any of the participating outlets listed below.

Almost 40 members of BBCA, which represents Bangladeshi-owned restaurants and takeaways, have already signed up to this initiative with the industry body calling on others (members or otherwise) to join.

One participant, Taj Tandoori in Cambridge said: “We want to do our bit to help our community and especially the most in need at this difficult time. We are offering a free meal every day to five elderly members of our community. This will compose of a poppadum, starter, curry and rice or bread.”

With the government having advised the elderly to self-isolate as protection against the coronavirus, BBCA says it is “extremely concerned for the elderly and vulnerable” and aims to provide them with a “nutritional meal full of proteins and carbohydrates”.

Once the order has been confirmed, the BBCA recommends that “ideally a member of your family should collect the order” adding: “But if you don’t have any relatives nearby, then our members will do all that is viable to get the meal to your door.”
