HOST AND ITS SUPPLY CHAIN COME TO THE RESCUE
Once again HOST stepped up to help the local community by using its own reliable food chain to ensure elderly residents in Taunton could have access to the food they required.
The stress and anxiety felt by so many careers during this difficult time can only be exasperated when you’re unable to access the food you need to continue giving your residents a healthy, balanced diet, and this was the case at Abbeyfield Northfield Court in Taunton.
Abbeyfield Northfield Court, a small supported housing residence for the active elderly, was unable to buy the food it needed from its local supermarket and so HOST ordered from its suppliers, and members of the HOST team delivered the goods to Taunton.
It wasn’t long before the sheltered house realised that it’s stock of PPE for its careers was insufficient, and again HOST used its suppliers to assist with the requirement.
David Lowe, Chairman of Abbeyfield Northfield Court said “In the early days of the Covid19 crisis our regular large supermarket could not supply us with the food we needed for our residents, some of whom have special dietary needs. HOST has stepped into the breach and is now supplying us with the food and other household items we require. Similarly, an extra supply of PPE items was required for our staff. The reassurance their reliable supply chain has given us has taken a great worry from the trustees and our staff.”
