LD Nutrition have teamed up with the Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation to help produce freshly-cooked meals for those struggling in the Wakefield District.
The Castleford-based company were founded in 2017 and is a family run business, with multiple stations across West Yorkshire.
Starting as a small business just three years ago, LD Nutrition have made big progress in recent years, operating out of Castleford, whilst also owning a collection point in the nearby town of Featherstone and distributing to homes across the area.
With the Big Feed on the Foundation’s agenda, the team at Wakefield needed a reliable catering company to help source and produce meals for those in need throughout the festive period.
Having experience in helping the vulnerable, LD Nutrition had no hesitation about getting involved and Dawn Westerman, co-founder of the company, says that they were eager to help out throughout the event.
“Craig [Foundation CEO] had been in touch because we had done similar projects in the past, on a smaller scale and mainly helping the older generation who were struggling,” Dawn explained.
“We sorted them a meat hamper as well as a Christmas dinner, with the council offering a £500 donation and it helped us support around 50 people.
“LD Nutrition have the facilities and expertise to help, we just need teams like the Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation to get involved.
“2020 has been a struggle in itself, which means we can’t create something on the scale the Foundation has done, so it is just important for us to get involved.”
This event has been set up to help combat poverty and hunger in the local area, and, while, Covid-19 has caused havoc across the world, helping individuals and families in their time of need as never been more prevalent.
With just days until the event begins, we urge anyone struggling in the Wakefield District to pay us a visit at either the Mobile Rocket Stadium or Rycroft Leisure Centre, because we will be here to help.
