“Meals on Wheels” Service launched in July 2020

The Asian Association of Chesterfield and N. Derbyshire is delighted to introduce

Saffron Kitchen: Community Meals Service

delivering fresh, hot, nutritious meals direct to your door!

For some time, the Association has seen a need in the community for a mid-day meal delivery service for elderly and vulnerable people and carers. We know from our own members, associate members and a wider community survey that a need exists.

The Asian Association has been successful in receiving a Big Lottery - Reaching Communities Grant and Tesco Bags of Help COVID-19 Communities Fund, for this noble project.

Plans have been evolving over the last six months or so but the advent of COVID-19, social distancing and lockdown measures have generated an urgency to implement the Project and the Association is now pleased to announce that it is ready to move ahead.

Through Saffron Kitchen, the Association initially plans to provide hot packed meals three days per week (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays).

Saffron Kitchen will offer Asian and western style preparations. The meals will be simple but nutritious and the choices will vary on each day offered. A modest charge will be made to assist with the cost of meal production, packaging and delivery. We will provide free food to members on referrals from Rural Action Derbyshire.

Saffron Kitchen will mainly be targeting elderly and vulnerable members and carers and those in the wider community of Chesterfield, Hasland, Grassmoor, Hady and other locals within a feasible radius e.g. Old Brampton, Calow etc.

Saffron Kitchen will provide immediate benefits and support during this “Lockdown” period but is intended to continue into the future and become self-sustaining.

The Association is collaborating with Rural Action Derbyshire in their project “Feeding Derbyshire”.
