Wiltons And Franco’s Open Their Kitchens to Provide Meals for the NHS, Keyworkers and the Homeless
While London restaurants remain closed for now, two of the finest are working behind the scenes to provide hot food for our NHS heroes and the homeless.
Wiltons and Franco’s are both located on super posh Jermyn Street. The two chefs have teamed up with the Westminster Connects Scheme to reach out to the vulnerable at this difficult time – and of course support the heroes in the NHS.
Supported by James Hambro and Partners who have contributed to the cost of producing the meals as well as suppliers Universal Garden and Reach Food Service, who have provided key ingredients for the dishes for free. Both Wiltons restaurant and Franco’s will be distributing hot, nutritious meals for the homeless on Fridays, distributed from St Patrick’s Church in Soho Square and for the NHS and Keyworkers, with the meals being collected directly from the restaurants on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Both of the renowned restaurants were forced to close their doors on the 18th March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Wiltons’ Head Chef, Daniel Kent said: “Wiltons and Franco’s restaurants are fortunate enough to work with many of the finest producers and suppliers in the UK. Many of which are small in size, independent and family-owned. We wanted to continue to support these as well as the NHS, keyworkers and those most vulnerable during these unprecedented times. By adhering to social distancing and opening the kitchens of both restaurants we can feed those who need it most, whilst continuing to work with our valued suppliers.”
