Members of Alzheimer's Support's three day clubs were treated to a special lunch menu this week - courtesy of Trowbridge-based food business apetito.

The company was oven testing a range of meals at The Cookery School in Warminster, which happens to be right next door to Old Silk Works Club.

When lunchtime arrived, the apetito team delivered a selection of meals to Old Silk Works, and the following day delivered to Mill Street Club in Trowbridge and Sidmouth Street Club in Devizes. In all they provided a tasty lunch for more than 60 day club members, staff and volunteers.

Lee Sheppard, Director of Corporate Affairs and Policy for apetito said: “As a business, we regularly hold oven testing sessions which enables us to provide the best advice to our customers to ensure they receive the highest quality of food every time.

The role food plays in health and well-being

“Through partnering with Alzheimer’s Support for these testing sessions, not only are we preventing food waste – something we constantly strive to avoid - but are also providing a hot, nutritious lunch to members of our local community who we know will welcome and enjoy our meals.

“We work very closely with people who are living with dementia, especially through our Care Homes and Healthcare divisions, and understand the important role food plays in health & well-being.

“As one of life’s simple pleasures, food is something individuals can look forward to and enjoy. We’re glad we can be a part of that whilst supporting a local charity which does extraordinary things.  Together, we can make a real difference”.

Head of Day Care at Alzheimer’s Support, Grant Newton said: “Once again, we are moved by the support of apetito.  This local company constantly goes above and beyond to make a real difference to the lives of people with dementia in Wiltshire. This latest generous donation of hot lunchtime meals for our members is gratefully received, and was enjoyed by all our members. Thank you apetito.”
