An Italian traditional Easter meal donated to frontline NHS staff fighting coronavirus

B-YOU, food Company that produces Italian balanced fresh meals at Now Food, University of Chester wanted to prepare something special for Easter day to say “thank you” to the health care workers who are on the frontlines of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and sometimes cannot find the time to step outside for buying food.

50 traditional lasagne and 50 tagliatelle Bolognese will be delivered to the hospital on Easter day.

B-YOU produces Italian traditional healthy meals and its project about the balanced Mediterranean diet was born within and supported by the business incubator of the University of Chester, NoWFood.

“We wanted to donate a typical and healthy Italian Easter meal to all our

NHS Chester Hospital key workers who are so actively helping the

community and who probably will not be able to have a traditional

Easter meal with their family during this emergency “explains Claudio

Gavillucci, B-YOU Co-Founder and ex Italian Serie A referee
