    A Zaffy Idea #FeedLondon

    A Little About Us

    We are Zafferano Catering - a stupid name we know, but our friends call us Zaff.

    We are a small but busy special events caterer in North West London – we have a great team, great clients and we love what we do.

    That was until 2 weeks ago when Coronavirus took hold of our beautiful city and decimated the events and hospitality industry. Our industry.

    We know we are not alone. Coronavirus has not only left thousands of already vulnerable people in London in an even more precarious place, but closer to home it has left many of our friends and colleagues in the hospitality industry without income or security. And there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight.

    Throughout the hospitality sector, there is an entire army of hard-working and loyal zero hour workers, on whom the entire industry relies, but who are now struggling to pay their rent and feed their families.

    The Zaffy Idea

    We’re not taking this lying down. Here’s our Zaffy idea.

    We have an empty kitchen, a fleet of vans and a brigade of freelance chefs, porters and front of house staff crying out for work and a sense of purpose.

    We want to help those in need and at the same time keep busy, keep motivated and create jobs whilst using the resources and expertise we have to hand.

    Here’s The Nub.

    We would ask you to donate as much as you can spare to allow us to fund the creation and distribution of some simple, tasty and nourishing food out to those most in need at this horrendous time for our Capital City…

    NHS workers, pensioner communities, skeleton schools, community projects, food banks, homeless projects and other sectors threatened by the Coronavirus. If there’s someone in need not mentioned here – let us know we’re all ears!

    This initiative is a not-for-profit concept, based on direct costs only – eg. Ingredients, packaging, chef time, porter time, driver time, fuel, congestion charge etc and we would offer complete financial transparency.

    It is anticipated that each generous portion of food including ingredients, labour and distribution will cost around £3.50 -£4.00, so even the smallest donation will make a real difference to someone trying to make ends meet, work through the crisis or survive on the streets. At the same time you will also be contributing to the wages of unemployed hospitality workers.

    These are unusual times but whilst the hospitality industry is on pause, we want to keep busy, keep positive and at the same time make life a little bit better for those in even more need than ourselves.

    Are you in??

    Even the smallest donation will make an enormous difference to both vulnerable Londoners and the beleaguered hospitality industry at large. Please help.

    Thank you.
