We're working to provide meals for vulnerable people

Our chefs at Sanders Senior Living have pledged to produce an extra 20 hot meals a day in an effort to help the vulnerable during the coronavirus crisis.

Both of our Sanders Senior Living luxury care homes, Graysford Hall in Leicester and Claridge Place in Olton, have both committed to the feeding initiative.

We wanted to do our bit during the lockdown period, when so many people have been affected by changes in regular services and accessibility to basic requirements.

To set up our voluntary food support initiative, each home has reached out to local charities, volunteer organisations and their local council to work together and form a recipient list for their meals on wheels service, which began on Tuesday 14 April.

Our chefs and their catering teams aim to provide a healthy, freshly prepared meal to 20 different people each day throughout these restrictive times, to help ease the pressure of having access to nutritious food as well as having to go out, encouraging people to stay at home, as guided by the government.

Delivered from door to door by volunteers from the homes local areas, those receiving meals can look forward to meals including Shepard’s pie, chicken in mushroom sauce and beef stew, served with a range of suitable sides including vegetables. Recipients so far include those in sheltered housing, isolated elderly people and deprived families.
