Chelsea FC and its stadium catering partner Levy have extended an initiative to supply meals to the NHS and charities that support elderly and vulnerable groups.
The duo has provided 78,000 meals over the last six weeks, but now plan to continue the service for another two weeks. It will see the number of meals distributed reach more than 115,000.
The meals, which are free of charge, are prepared in Levy’s kitchens and distributed daily, with over 14,000 meals per week provided.
The meals will be provided to Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust across their five local hospitals, including St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, Charing Cross Hospital in Fulham and Hammersmith Hospital.
The pair is also working alongside charity partners to support the elderly, those in sheltered accommodation and vulnerable groups. These include Age UK, The Smile Brigade, Unity Works, and other housing units in London.
Additionally, the club has also made the Millennium Hotel and Copthorne Hotels at Stamford Bridge available to the NHS during the pandemic.
