1 Million and One Meals in 10 weeks
The Caring Foundation is a privately run, family foundation created in January 2020 by Richard and Patricia Caring. Richard Caring owns and operates multiple businesses in the hospitality sector, including The Ivy Collection. In light of the current Covid-19 crisis the foundation has brought together teams from across Richard Caring’s hospitality network to deliver a selection of meal options to NHS workers and vulnerable communities.
In 10 weeks, teams of volunteers from across Annabel’s, The Ivy Collection, Bill’s, Le Caprice, Scott’s, Sexy Fish, Harry’s Dolce Vita and 34 Mayfair came together to create and deliver delicious food to NHS staff, Key workers and charities supporting critically vulnerable communities of the isolated elderly, families with no income and hungry children. Suppliers have given generously, members and customers donated financially, and logistics partners stepped in to deliver the meals across the country.
The last few months have been challenging for us all, and we want to thank every single person who volunteered, who went above and beyond to contribute at a time of such crisis. It has been a huge team effort that has helped communities across the UK and Ireland. We are hugely grateful for all the support and the overwhelming generosity. In the years to come when we look back at how everyone stepped up we know the acts of kindness, will not be forgotten.
