So much more than Community Lunch

Just some of the food received from Aldi through their Surplus food partner Neighbourly

A huge thank you to Aldi for providing us with their surplus food for our community lunches. We receive goods daily through their community partner, The Neighbourly Scheme. Community lunches provide opportunities for our families and staff to enjoy good food in a relaxed atmosphere. As you can see today we had an amazing buffet lunch!

Dream Night at Chester Zoo

A huge thank you to Chester Zoo for supplying enough tickets to allow all of our families have an amazing evening at the zoo. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity for our families to be shown around the zoo with their very own Safari Guide. Our families were treated to a picnic tea and refreshments throughout the evening. Brave families were also given the opportunity to fly high above the Lion Enclosure in a cherry picker!

Our newly created ‘Family Friend’ post at work!!

Here’s Kath in her newly created ‘Family Friend’ role. She is assisting two of our residents to cook good quality food for less. They started by writing a list then going shopping to get good quality ingredients for the cheapest prices. Then came the hard bit, they went into our community kitchen and batch cooked 3 different meals, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Chicken Curry and Shepherds Pie. And oh boy, did they batch cook?! Over 56 portions in total!

The completed meals were shared between themselves at a cost of £15.00 each!! Well done ladies x
