Restaurants provide free meals to key workers and elderly

During the pandemic crisis a number of spice restaurants showed their community spirit by providing meals to those affected.
Market Financial Solutions (MFS) and Mayfair restaurant Benares joined
forces and donated over 5,500 free meals to workers in the NHS and
emergency services between March and July. Food packages were delivered to Hammersmith, Charing Cross, Chelsea and Westminster, and St Mary’s (Paddington) hospitals, as well as local NHS medical centres in Mayfair, Knightsbridge and Victoria. Tiba Raja, director at MFS, said: “Even at the height of the lockdown, we remained committed to delivering freshly cooked meals on a daily basis. This initiative is just one example of how businesses have stepped up to support the wider community in the fight against the pandemic.”

In Surrey Le Raj and Fetcham Tandoori also laid on a special delivery scheme for NHS workers while London’s Dishoom joined up with other restaurants in the capital as part of the #FeedtheNHS campaign. There are also other curry restaurants across the country which have followed this campaign and supported their local NHS.
