We are supplying 300 boxes a week to Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton to support frontline NHS staff working throughout the pandemic.
The food parcels are being delivered to the Well Being Hub at the county’s largest acute hospital. Providing a nutritiously balanced meal, they will 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 our in-house catering team.
During the spring lockdown last year, we delivered some 2100 meal boxes to the hospital and it is hoped this figure will be exceeded this time around.
Graeme Barclay, General Manager at Taunton School, says: ‘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.”
