Social enterprise Open Kitchen Manchester took the 1.1 million frozen meals, which were sitting in a warehouse at Manchester Airport, to give out to those badly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
This included homeless people, families living in poverty and those who fall into the vulnerable category of people most at risk from the virus.
Open Kitchen has been working with local businesses for the last six years to save food destined for landfill.
The organization’s usual MO is to use that produce for its catering company, which cooks up food for corporate and social events, with any profits used to subsidise community projects with vulnerable people.
👨🏻🌾 Ending hunger is one of the most urgent and widespread milestones to be reached in terms of development.
