Scarborough Community Kitchen Reaches 1,000 Meals Milestone

Published by Karen Liu at 7:01am 29th April 2020.

Scarborough's Community Kitchen has made 1,157 meals for those in need so far.

It was set up last month by a group of, chefs, café and restaurant owners in the town to help people during the Coronavirus outbreak.

It aims to deliver pre-cooked meals to re-heat and ingredients for meals to residents who need them.

Eat Me Cafe owner, Martyn Hyde, said:

"We're giving meals everyday to the ICU at Scarborough Hospital and providing meals to the ambulance service outside; which are running a team from 8 'til 8 in the morning outside the main entrance of Scarborough Hospital.

So the donations are going to a wide area, it's not just going to the vulnerable, it's going to the front line like the ICU staff and to the children, their parents and their families in need.

The donations have been amazing. We're internally grateful as everyone of these meals is paid for by somebody providing a donation. Every donation is a gift to somebody else."

Martyn has been speaking to Yorkshire Coast Radio's Paddy in the Morning:
