Just Eat delivers free food to isolated and vulnerable

UK hot food ordering platform Just Eat and its delivery partners Stuart are to deliver free meals to vulnerable people and those isolated due to the pandemic.

Just Eat is working with the charity FoodCycle to deliver food parcels to those in most need. The company has also announced that NHS workers are to receive special discounts on their normal orders of food from the platform.

“As the UK’s leading food delivery business, we’re committed to doing our bit and supporting the vulnerable in our communities,” Andrew Kenny, UK Managing Director at Just Eat, said in a statement.

“With millions doing the right thing and staying at home, this service has never been more important. We are proud to be able to provide continued support to FoodCycle, and make a difference for those who need it the most,” Andrew Kenny continued.

David Saenz, Chief Operating Officer at Stuart, also said: “We are excited to be partnering with FoodCycle and Just Eat to help deliver meals to the most vulnerable members of the community in Birmingham. Being able to work together with our courier partners on such a rewarding mission is a privilege. At a time like this, we are thrilled to contribute to all of the efforts being made UK-wide to support each other.”
