Having already donated over 30,000 bags of crisps to a variety of key workers and local heroes during this challenging time, Norfolk based hand-cooked crisp brand, KETTLE® Chips, has pledged to continue support through a number of charitable initiatives across the country.
Kizzy Beckett, Senior Brand Manager at KETTLE® Chips, said: “It is really important to everyone at KETTLE® Chips that we do what we can to show our support and gratitude to all of the fantastic individuals and organisations across the UK who are tirelessly working to help keep everyone safe, fed and feel special. We hope the donations we have already sent have helped in some way, if only to bring a much-needed smile to people’s faces. We hope to continue to donate packets of crisps over the coming months and will continue to listen to those from communities across the UK to ensure we’re delivering to those most in need.”
Since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, KETTLE® Chips has donated 16,000 bags of crisps to FareShare, an organisation which helps fight hunger and food waste across the UK; 8,000 packets of crisps as part of a Norfolk-based initiative to thank local heroes that have provided unwavering support to their communities; and thousands of packets to The Feed, a Norwich-based social enterprise with an ambition to prevent poverty, hunger and homelessness. The Feed has been using these bags as part of their ‘lunchboxes’ initiative, supplying homeless people with food and support to help them through this difficult time.
An additional 4,800 bags of KETTLE® Chips have also been donated to invaluable local key workers across East Anglia to say thank you for their continued efforts in supporting the local community from the frontline. So far, these have been personally delivered to local Norfolk organisations such as Longwater and Hellesden Ambulance Stations, Norwich and Norfolk University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, East Anglian Air Ambulance and Cromer and District Hospital.
