Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation can confirm that LD Nutrition will continue with their supply of freshly-cooked, healthy meals throughout ‘The Big Feed 2.0.’
The Castleford-based company, founded in 2017, played a huge role in the success of the first event, producing over 1400 meals, whilst offering up their time and dedication as part of a donation to the project.
With preliminary plans in place to deliver many more people over the extended two-month period, starting from 22nd February, the Foundation had no hesitation but to renew our commitment with LD Nutrition.
Now, looking ahead to a much larger version of the event, co-owner of LD Nutrition, Dawn Westerman, is hoping to learn from the first Big Feed but is also looking forward to helping the Wakefield community once again.
“We learnt some lessons from the first Big Feed event held in December, but the majority of it was fairly smooth,” Dawn explained.
“As a company, we already have all the facilities and expertise to be able to cope with a project like this. We are all about giving back to the community in one way or another – highlighted by the recent snow – and we thoroughly enjoy it.
“As much as it is helping the people of Wakefield, it is also aiding us as a business.
“Within the current climate, everyone is struggling and with the majority of people only earning 80% of their normal wages, there isn’t room for luxuries.”
Following the overwhelming success of the first event, the Wakefield Trinity Community Foundation are dedicated to helping the elderly and vulnerable throughout this pandemic on a much larger scale.
For anyone who is wanting to volunteer at any point across the two months, we urge you to email [email protected].
