Hawksmoor gives back

LondonIt’s called the hospitality industry for a reason, and this week in particular has highlighted exactly why. City Harvest, a surplus food redistribution charity supporting thousands of vulnerable people in London, has seen demand for its services “skyrocket” in the face of the covid-19 outbreak.

Hawksmoor called on fellow restaurateurs who have been forced to close during the pandemic, or could soon find themselves closing in the coming days, to put any excess stock to good use by donating it to City Harvest.

Hawksmoor said it passed its excess supplies to the charity on Wednesday (18 March), and that its general manager from the Spitalfields restaurant had volunteered to drive deliveries for the organisation.
