#FilipinoFood4NHS

#FilipinoFood4NHS is back: we are fundraising to provide free Filipino meals for NHS staff. As with 2020, any funds raised over the target will enable us to expand the project across the UK.

A £20 donation will enable us to prepare and deliver 10 Filipino meals for NHS staff.

We have the volunteers - Filipino Food UK members Baboy Club, The Adobros, SARAPLuto, Turo Turo, Naimas, Pinocandy, Food with Mae, Mama Z and Roni B's Kitchen are ready to cook the meals, which are to be distributed by the charity Kanlungan Filipino Consortium  - now we just need the funds to cover food and supplies.

ABOUT #FilipinoFood4NHS:

Filipinos are the third largest nationality employed by the NHS, with over 40,000 Pinoy members of staff, according to the Nursing Times. #FilipinoFood4NHS is run by volunteers from the Filipino Food UK community and the charity Kanlungan. It is open to all NHS staff and we serve Filipino favourites like adobo, ginataang hipon, chicken inasal, pancit, cassava cake and more.

Many thanks to everyone who donated last year: together we raised nearly £5,000 and cooked over 2,500 meals for NHS staff in London, Manchester and Surrey during the first lockdown in 2020. Thank you to @FilipinoFoodUK for providing meals: The Adobros, Baboy Club, Food with Mae, LUTO, Roni B, SARAP, Chef Rachel Stockley, Mama Z and London Filipino. You can read more about the project here.

A year has passed since the first lockdown and healthcare workers are still under immense daily pressure as the burden of the pandemic continues to take its toll on our health service. This is our way of coming together to say thank you and we appreciate everything that you do.
