Castle Hotel is providing free, nourishing meals to NHS workers in Lincoln.
The scheme means that hospital staff can eat a decent meal whilst on shift or take it home after a long stressful shift.
Many front line staff are already working very long hours and this will only worsen with the pandemic. With cafes and other eateries closed, there is an increased need to get decent, healthy food to ICU and Covid19 units at the hospital.
The initiative is currently being funded by Paul Catlow and Saera Ahmad, the owners of Castle Hotel. They are providing meals on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday but are interested in hearing from other businesses so they can offer the service seven days a week.
We want to help ensure Lincoln’s key workers have the choice of a healthy meal each day. Friday was the first delivery, but we are looking for other restaurants to join us as well as donations (this is a not-for-profit initiative). We feel this is a good use of an empty commercial kitchen and represented the opportunity to help.Saera Ahmad, Castle Hotel

- Sausage & Mash with Onion Gravy;
