Whittlebury Park to make up to 2,000 Christmas meals for those in need across Northamptonshire
Whittlebury Park Hotel and Spa Resort will prepare up to 2,000 meals for those in need across Northamptonshire this Christmas. The four-star country hotel is partnering with Carlsberg Marston Brewing Company Ltd and the CIO of Food4Heroes to bring delicious Christmas food, including slabs, to locals.
The meals, to be distributed on December 23, include traditional roast turkey stuffed with sage, onion and cranberries, hash browns, maple glazed parsnips and carrots, Brussels sprouts, bacon wrapped chipolatas and roast turkey gravy. A vegetarian option consisting of chestnut mushrooms and spinach pudding with all the trimmings will also be available.
It is an honor to be part of this project and to support Food4Heroes to bring much needed help to some of Northamptonshire’s most vulnerable people. We are proud to be part of such a great local community that has provided us with an incredibly hardworking, compassionate and talented workforce here at Whittlebury Park. We know what a difficult year has been for many people and we hope these meals will help lighten that burden on those who need it most and repay just a portion of the love and support that the community has given us the years. Marc Webster, commercial director
The Carlsberg Marston Brewing Company is funding the cost of the ingredients for the meals being prepared and packaged by Whittlebury Park staff on December 22 and 23. Food4Heroes, a charity set up during the COVID-19 pandemic to provide nutritious meals for essential workers, will coordinate and distribute the meals across Northamptonshire.
We are delighted to be working with Whittlebury Park on this project. It’s a challenging time for the hospitality industry so we are very grateful to the Whittlebury team who we know will do a fantastic job of preparing delicious meals for those in need. This year is a particularly difficult one for many individuals and families and we hope this initiative will bring some relief into the holiday season. John Brownhill, co-founder of Food4Heroes
The Daylight Center in Wellingborough, a charity dedicated to alleviating poverty, homelessness and social exclusion in North Northamptonshire, is one of a number of organizations taking part in the project, which aims to help as many people as possible who need a little help this Christmas need additional support.
Supporting such projects is one of the highlights of my work. No one needs to worry about how to support their family, especially at Christmas time. Knowing that the hot meals my team and I prepare will help take away some of that anxiety, even if it’s just for a day, is humbling and a true privilege. We hope people will enjoy these meals as much as we enjoy making them. Craig Rose, Executive Head Chef
