Plant-based meat company THIS™ is donating its products to a London charity and vegan cookery school to enable them to provide meals to vulnerable members of society.
Plant-based meat company THIS™ has already donated over 1 tonne of vegan products to London based charity City Harvest, and this week they’ll be donating another 60kg of products.
The business is also donating products to vegan cookery school Made in Hackney, who are currently offering a free food home delivery service for vulnerable people, to support those in need of food during these uncertain times.
Both foundations distribute their food supplies to chefs who then cook it and provide meals to vulnerable members of society.
Commenting on their donations in a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, Andy Shovel Co-founder of THIS™ said:
“Right now, more than ever, we need to support the hospitality industry, so we’re doing everything we can to support food charities and to keep people fed and remain positive.”
THIS™ is looking at ways to keep spirits high and is planning live cook-a-longs with chefs and fitness classes via their Instagram account.
Many stories of hope and communities coming together have emerged during the crisis, with the likes of coconut oil brand Lucy Bee donating thousands of its natural soap bars to charities across the UK, helping to protect against the spread of COVID-19.
Plant-based milk company Rebel Kitchen has also donated 14,000 milkshakes to hospitals and food banks across the UK to support those in need during the coronavirus pandemic.
To combat the issue of stockpiling leaving vulnerable people without the necessities they need to survive, a vegan group in Worthing has launched the Worthing Vegan Food Bank Network in an effort to help people cope during the ongoing pandemic.
