Arla Pro, the foodservice division of farmer-owned dairy co-operative Arla Foods, has pledged its support to the Food4Heroes campaign with a contribution of dairy products.
Food4Heroes delivers 27,000 high-quality, nutritious free meals a week to hospitals across the UK.
Amanda Guest and John Brownhill, founders of Food4Heroes, said: "We are so very grateful for the generous donations of milk, cheese and butter from Arla Foods, which means we can continue to provide daily meals to the frontline NHS Staff in Yorkshire hospitals. Thanks to the generosity of Arla and other local providers we are now able to serve 19 hospitals nationally, and over 27,000 meals to NHS heroes every week."
Jonathan Dixon, vice-president for Arla Pro UK, added: "While we are delighted to be able to provide this support to key workers and vulnerable people in these difficult times, we do so knowing that the foodservice sector is facing severe challenges. At Arla Pro we are committed to supporting our customers with rebuilding their businesses in the coming months and welcoming people back through the doors of the nation's pubs, coffee shops and restaurants when it is safe to do so."
