Instead of sitting at home and feeling useless, Mark Moriarty, along with the head chef from the Greenhouse restaurant and some colleagues, have been running a production kitchen in Kilcullen, Co. Kildare.
Their aim is to send out approx 200 meals a day to the front-line workers who are too tired to cook a substantial and nutritious meal when they arrive home. The chef's hope to bring a bit of happiness to them through amazing food.
The ingredients for the food are being donated by local companies and farmers and the group have also launched a GoFundMe page to finance the not-for-profit project, which raised €3,000 of its €50,000 target within 24 hours. This will allow the chef's to keep going for as long as the food is needed and any surplus funds when the project is finished will be used to finance a chef training scholarship.
