The charity aims to support the vulnerable elderly black community local to Rugby with culturally tailored food deliveries and meals.
Many of the government backed schemes supply foods which many of the black community are intolerant too and cannot eat – such as dairy based products and pasta. In addition, many of the food support schemes come from the main supermarkets which don’t supply the foods that this community typically eat (photo was taken pre-COVID).
The ‘Carryit Come’ initiative is a fantastic partnership between Negrills restaurant (Rugby) and NU:GEN charity and it delivers cultural groceries and cultural home cooked meals to the most vulnerable elders in the black community.
Sherril Donaldson, Managing Director, thanked CEMEX saying that our donation will allow them to continue this service for the next three months and provide approximately 500 meals.
“I would like thank CEMEX for their generous contribution to the Carryit Come Project. The funds will allow us to continue with a service that keeps the most vulnerable members of the community away from the environments where they are more at risk of contracting the virus. The recipients of the service have been very grateful as the service has ensured they continue to maintain their ‘normal’ diet.”
