Gina Allen, owner of Welwyn Garden City-based Eat Lunch, said: “We are a small family business looking to offer a much-needed service for those that cannot afford to stockpile, or physically are unable to get to the supermarket due to the need to self-isolate.

“Our core day-to-day business serves offices throughout Hertfordshire with freshly prepared sandwiches and buffets, however due to many individuals working from home we feel a strong need to support our staff to keep the wheels in motion. All of our community packages include items made locally in our Welwyn Garden City catering venue.”

For every 10 packages sold Eat Lunch will be donating one to the local foodbank, plus people can purchase packages for foodbanks and they will deliver directly.

To schedule a delivery, or to chat about the packages call: 01707 331751, email: buffets@eatlunch.co.uk or visit: eatlunch.co.uk/online-store.
