The College’s catering and hospitality department has teamed up to support local café, Pelham Kitchen, to provide meals for residents at Nottingham Community Housing Association (NCHA) care homes.

The coro­n­avirus cri­sis has caused many busi­ness­es to close their doors to the pub­lic, and Pel­ham Kitchen in Sher­wood Rise, is one of them, but when NCHA approached café own­er Rebec­ca Eng­land about the pos­si­bil­i­ty of cater­ing for some of their care homes, the deci­sion was simple.

She said: Being able to con­tin­ue with my busi­ness whilst help­ing to sup­port vul­ner­a­ble peo­ple dur­ing this wor­ry­ing time was an easy deci­sion for me to make.

Pro­vid­ing meals to these care homes is help­ing to alle­vi­ate the pres­sure on their care and sup­port staff. It helps me to stay in busi­ness dur­ing the lock­down, and to con­tin­ue to employ staff, and it helps them, because it’s one less thing that their care staff have to think about. It means they can con­cen­trate on essen­tial care rather than spend­ing time in the kitchen.

I’m real­ly grate­ful to Not­ting­ham Col­lege as they stepped in to pro­vide the much need­ed cook­ing equip­ment I required to enable me to cook in larg­er quan­ti­ties than usual.”

It’s so impor­tant to Not­ting­ham Col­lege to sup­port local busi­ness­es and our com­mu­ni­ty when we can. Now more than ever is a time to pull togeth­er and help each oth­er out. We’ve been able to pro­vide a selec­tion of cook­ing equip­ment, includ­ing sev­er­al large pans and oven trays to Rebec­ca, and I’m just so pleased that we have been able to play a small part in help­ing these care homes.
