The Yarrow hotel in Broadstairs has produced and donated hundreds of meals to help those in need in the Thanet area.
The pre-portioned nutritious meals were created by the four-star Hotel’s team of chefs using produce from the Hotel’s kitchen and EKC Group’s Broadstairs College’s training kitchens which would have otherwise gone to waste.
The initiative was devised by The Yarrow’s Hotel Manager, Lee Osborn, and Head Chef, Ben Williams, who commented: “It was really important to us at The Yarrow to do something proactive during this difficult time to help the local community. We created individual portions of homemade soups and bread and donated the meals to Changing Minds Kent’s Lifeboat Project and the Salvation Army for distribution to those in need.”
Ben added: “We’re proud to have been able to produce these meals whilst minimising food waste. It’s great to support the community and we hope that the meals will help the people and families who need them most.”
The Yarrow is part of the EKC Group and is the only hotel of its kind in the UK to offer students high-quality training experiences in a luxury establishment.
The Hotel is currently closed in line with the Government’s Coronavirus guidance.
