Taunton School is supplying 300 meal boxes each week to Musgrove Park Hospital, in Taunton, to support frontline NHS staff working throughout the pandemic.
Starting this week, the food parcels are being delivered to the Well Being Hub at the county’s largest acute hospital. Providing a nutritiously balanced meal, they be available to staff 24 hours a day.
The meal boxes have been made possible thanks to the philanthropy of a former student and will be freshly prepared daily by the school’s in-house catering team.
During the spring lockdown last year, some 2100 meal boxes were delivered by the school to the hospital and it is hoped this figure will be exceeded this time around.
Graeme Barclay, General Manager at Taunton School, said: “‘We are delighted to once again be able to donate these meal boxes to the fabulous team at Musgrove Park Hospital as a thank you for the selfless work they do each and every day.
“As a school, we strongly believe in the importance of giving back to our local community, especially during such a challenging time. It was wonderful to hear words of appreciation from staff when we made the first deliveries this week.”
