Amazing York initiative to offer free suppers to vulnerable people smashes its fundraising target
Another amazing, uplifting story to report from York today.
A group of big-hearted local independent food traders in the city set up the Supper Collective – to deliver nutritious meals to heat at home for the isolated and vulnerable during the coronavirus outbreak.
Cooked by the team at the Pig and Pastry on Bishopthorpe Road, the delicious meals have already been dropped off on the doorsteps of dozens of people in York.
“Overwhelmed by the response and keen to maintain this project”, Julia Holding of the Pig and Pastry launched a fundraising appeal.
The aim was to raise £1,000.
In fact more than £3,400 has been raised for the Supper Collective.
Their response? “Wow!!! What an amazing bunch of people you all are.
“I suppose we’d better keep going then!”
The free suppers have been made possible through the support of people including Simon Baynes, Haxby bakehouse, Dough Eyed Pizza, Skosh, York Green-Link, Pete Kilbane and Frankie Hayes.
