Wirral Met College, which is working alongside Hope for the Hungry, requested the food items from Tesco so its professional cookery students could create 150 meals each week for those in need in the area.
Hope for the Hungry will collect these weekly top ups of pre-prepared meals over the month of December, and distribute these round the community.
In the fourth week of the initiative, on 21 December, students will be making mince pies to be distributed across the hostels where the homeless have been housed.
When the college reached out to Lindsay Kennedy, Community Champion at Tesco Heswall, asking for donations, Lindsay was keen to help. She said:
“This year, Christmas will be different for everyone. We appreciate how difficult it will be for those without homes to get into the festive spirit, but we hope this act of kindness from Tesco, Wirral Met College, and Hope for the Hungry, will give them something to smile about this Christmas.”
Tesco Heswall has been asked to provide a host of ingredients for the student-led meal prep initiative, including a variety of meats, some dairy items, and some additional frozen pieces.
Ingredients donated by Tesco Heswall included meat and vegetarian mince, braising steaks, meat and vegetarian sausages, gammon joints, natural yoghurt, frozen sweetcorn, and frozen puff pastry.
To help bring some added festive cheer, Lindsay also contributed 150 Christmas selection boxes to go out with the meals, to provide the recipients with something a little extra.
This Christmas initiative will provide not only valuable meals to the homeless, but also work experience for the hospitality students involved, educating them on catering for a large numbers.
