NACC to attempt world record

The National Association of Care Caterers (NACC) is calling on caterers to help set a world record for the total number of the same community meals served to service users on the same day.

The nationwide challenge will take place on 1 October in National Community Meals Week and is part of the organisation's 25th anniversary celebrations this year.

Participating operators will be asked to deliver the exact same two-course menu to customers, comprising roast beef, potatoes and seasonal vegetables followed by apple crumble and custard.

Karen Oliver, NACC national chair, urged all service providers to take part.

"The world record attempt is incredibly exciting and a fantastic way to launch National Community Meals Week in this, the NACC's silver anniversary year," she said.

By securing the world record we will really highlight the fantastic service and clearly demonstrate the sheer number of people that rely on this life line.

The event will be launched at the Jubilee Centre in St Albans.

Participation in the world record attempt and National Community Meals Week is open to NACC members. For further information and to request a National Community Meals Week pack email or call 0870 748 0180.
