JMC Packaging Ltd with help from several other businesses, is helping by providing trays and machinery to produce 1200 meals per week for vulnerable members of our local communities.
JMC Packaging have donated all the food containers and installed a special tray-sealing machine at Moy Park to ensure all meals arrive safe and fresh.
The Resource Centre Derry provides vital services and advice to people in the North West including welfare support, financial hardship advice as well as training and day-care. The group also provides a ‘Meals on Wheels’ service and operates a Community Shop which has seen demand more than double due to ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
Moy Park’s Head of Culinary, Aaron Dixon “Without JMCs Packaging and tray sealing support we would have struggled to get anywhere close to 1200 meals out the door this week so thank you so much for your donation – it is incredible.
With incredibly generous contributions from food and packaging companies in the area, we’re delighted to prepare and donate these meals to help RCD reach those people most in need of support. The meals we are providing can all be quickly heated up at home and have been made fresh by our culinary team on-site. I can’t describe the sense of pride the team here and all the suppliers feel by helping such a worthwhile cause in this difficult time.”
Paddy McCarron, Senior Manager, The Resource Centre Derry said; “On behalf of the RCS Board of Directors and management, I extend my gratitude to the hard work of the Moy Park team who are helping us provide an essential service to those in need. It is great to see everyone – from local businesses to our own volunteers – going the extra mile to support and protect our vulnerable people.”
