Free food for Londoners in need from Lina Stores!

** UPDATE - thank you so much for all of your support! We have smashed our original target but can do much more! 

 For every £10k raised we can provide c.4,000 free meals to those in need!  With your help lets get this to 20,000 free meals! **

In this time of crisis we have set up this funding page to help provide free food for Londoners in need.

 Lina Stores has been making fresh handmade pasta and Italian sauces in London since 1944. 

Your support will help us provide emergency food kits consisting of freshly made pasta and sauces that will be given free to hospitality staff who have been made redundant during this public health crisis. 

Food kits will each contain enough food to make 10 separate meals consisting of 2kg of pasta, plus 2kg of accompanying sauces and cheese. 

We will be contacting our network directly of hospitality operators to help them identify members of their teams in need and will be arranging either pick up or delivery depending on the situation and government safety guidance.  

The more money we raise the further we will be able to assist and will look at other groups who are in need.

100% of your donation will be spent on:

·        Fresh ingredients to make the care packages – pasta, sauces, cheese

·        Packaging  

·        Staff to produce and deliver the food

No funds will be used towards rent / rates / overheads or management of our kitchen.

 We will be providing updates on our social media channels and website (  with how many people we have fed and how people have benefitted from these kits.

 We want to look after London - the community that has been supporting us for over 75 years.

 Please donate what you can, there are many people who are without jobs and at risk as a result of this global crisis.  Your donation will help to feed people in need. 

 Anyone who donates more than £20 will get 20% off in our restaurants throughout our reopening period.  

 We have the resources and the team - we now need your support to feed as many people as we can!
