Feed the Frontline
By the time frontline key workers head home, shops are often shut, shelves of fresh healthy food are empty and they are so tired they just want to get home to spend time with loved ones.
Feed the Frontline is a charitable campaign to provide key workers – NHS staff and carers – with healthy fresh food to support and nourish them as they work longer hours under increased pressure in the battle against COVID-19.
We need your help
The funds we have raised so far have allowed us to deliver over 35,000 bags of fresh fruit and vegetables to four hospitals thus far. We need to raise an additional £250,000 to be able to deliver more food to more hospitals across the UK.
The money you donate today, equates to healthy food in frontline workers hands this week!
Every £10 donated will pay for a fresh food parcel for a healthcare worker for a week and 100% of your donation will go to support the frontline key workers. (www.feedthefrontline.co.uk)
Feed the Frontline taps into the UKs excellent regional market network, including Borough and Bradford markets to source, package-up and deliver food parcels direct to hospitals.
“Our shifts are so long that by the time we have finished, shops are closed or have run out of fresh produce.”
– Sara Danesin, Masterchef finalist who has returned to work as a staff nurse
“Thank you very much for the very generous donations which are helping our staff to stay healthy during this challenging time for the NHS.”
– David Bradley CEO of South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.
“A massive thank you and @FeedUKFrontline for our delivery! It has just arrived on our hospital site and we are sharing it with our colleagues here and out in the community.”
– Whittington Health NHS Trust
“Could not believe it when the van was opened - the quality and quantity of fruit and vegetables was simply fantastic – brought smiles to the faces of many nursing teams today. A great initiative.”
– Paul Watkins (Director of Funding at Leeds Cares)
