Las Iguanas, part of Casual Dining Group, has joined the Feed Our Frontline campaign and will be providing 1,800 hot meals a week for NHS workers at the Birmingham Heartlands and Queen Elizabeth hospitals.
The initiative, which will operate out of the company’s Temple Street branch in Birmingham, will see meals delivered three days a week starting from the 12 May. The meals include a range of the Latin American restaurant’s popular dishes, such as: Vegan and Beef Chillies; Burritos; and Brazilian Curries.
The restaurant has put a range of strict extra procedures in place to ensure the safety of all team members involved, which includes social distancing measures between staff and delivery drivers, contact-free handover of prepared meals, and regular sanitisation of the pass.
Feed Our Frontline brings together a coalition of well-known restaurants and food providers to provide free meals for frontline NHS workers who are battling the Covid-19 pandemic. It is funded by the FeedNHS initiative launched by Damian Lewis and Matt Lucas, and currently serves over 10,000 meals a day across the UK.
Julie McEwan, Brand Director at Las Iguanas, commented: “Feed our Frontline is an outstanding initiative that taps into the spirit of the hospitality industry to provide fresh food for frontline NHS workers. The whole team feel really proud to be able to give something back to NHS workers and show their appreciation at this difficult time.”
