More than 100 vulnerable people and carers have been supported by Kent Fresh Doorstep Deliveries thanks to a Covid-19 response grant from Santander Universities.
With the £500 grant, Kent Fresh, provided two care homes with fresh fruit and vegetables to feed more than 60 residents and their key workers. In addition, the company, which is based in Westgate, delivered 30 food bags to Birchington Food Bank which will provide support to a further 50 people.
Director, Bobby Mason, said: “When lockdown began we quickly realised that doorstep deliveries were going to be vital in ensuring vulnerable people were able to get the nutritious food they needed to get through. Being able to support care homes, key workers and other vulnerable people has been a huge privilege.”
The grants were distributed through Kent Business School which highlighted the funding through its regular newsletter to businesses.
