This week, The Pig is mostly shopping from home… and most certainly not going short of anything!
The Thoughtful Bakery’s click and collect/home delivery door is very much open for business, offering dairy, pantry and larder essentials and ready meals alongside fabulous bread and associated sweet treats.
Meanwhile, the bakery’s COVID- 19 Front Liner Donation fund is doing amazing things for the NHS Key Workers who are doing amazing things for us at this difficult time. https://thoughtful-bakery.myshopify.com
Marvellous meat, fabulous fish, delectable dairy produce and perfect pantry goodies: shop ‘live’ at Larkhall Butchers (paying full respect to social distancing rules, of course) or order over the phone from a business that’s keeping calm and carrying on in order to keep Bath sane. https://larkhallbutchers.co.uk
Eveleigh’s of Bath are delivering your choice from a fabulous range of Gourmet Ready Meals directly to your doorstep: buy five, and Eveleigh’s will donate and deliver one of their vital Care Packages to an RUH Key Worker. http://www.eveleighscafe.co.uk/post/covid-19-delivered-ready-meals
Everybody’s talking about Yak Yeti Yak’s doorstep deliveries of Nepalese ready meals plus optional side dishes, or Meal Kits that include everything you need to make dishes such as Shekuwa Kebabs, Chicken Chilli and the restaurant’s legendary Momos at home. £1 from every delivery will be split between helping to subsidise meals for Key Workers at the RUH and the YYY Foundation. https://shop.yakyetiyak.co.uk
Newton Farm Foods is offering a home delivery service for those over 70 or those who are self-isolating as they (or someone they live with) fall into the vulnerable category, plus NHS frontline workers. The extensive product list includes all manner of groceries, fresh produce, meat, sweet treats, Bertinet bread and ready meals for one. https://www.newtonfarmfoods.co.uk/home-deliveries.html
The Bath and NE Somerset Third Sector Group 3SG has bought a host of local partners together to create a Compassionate Community to support everybody during difficult times. On the food front, the team have collaborated with the Sustainable Food Partnership to generate a regularly-updated list of local providers offering food services to people across Bath and north east Somerset. https://www.3sg.org.uk
While we’re here, let’s not forget… Bath Foodbank Centres are closed until further notice, but e-vouchers are allowing people in need to have food parcels delivered to their homes.
The service is currently in dire need of supplies including cereal, tinned/packet goods, UHT milk, long life juice, chocolate and biscuits, coffee and toiletries; find donation points in supermarkets across Bath. https://bath.foodbank.org.uk
