eBites Summer 2020

Undeterred by the cancellation of the 2020 Manchester Marathon, our in-house marathon-enthusiast, Alex, recently ran the full 26.2 miles in his own back garden. Read his full, inspiring story, on page 4.

Like many, VfL’s entire roving chef team has faced setbacks because of the pandemic. Their work for VfL would usually take them to UK care homes, lunch clubs, and community centres. But they have risen to the challenge of delivering such training online – now even reaching global platforms (page 5).

Care establishments remain under huge pressure to continue to cater to residents’ requirements while keeping them and their staff safe. We recent caught up with Andy Jones, chair of the public sector catering group, to find out more about its new 20% less meat campaign (page 6).

Those who are ready to take their plant-based catering to the next level should check out VfL’s new ‘Care catering for older vegetarians and vegans’ online training (page 7). Created by our team of chefs and nutritionists, the conveniently bite-sized training will help care establishments to take their plant-based catering to the next level – while maintaining that vital safe distance.

If you do need any extra support during this time, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We have shared some feedback from our service users on page 8.
