As the COVID-19 crisis continues to wreak havoc upon the hospitality industry across Britain and beyond, more and more businesses are coming together to create something positive through testing times.
In it Together Deli will open its doors to the public on Monday 18th May selling a selection of fresh and tasty produce from some of Yorkshire’s best restaurants, butchers and bakers. There will also be a selection of craft beers, wines and spirits on offer, as well as a gift shop.
All proceeds from the non-profit organisation will go towards the elderly and families who are struggling across Yorkshire. The deli has been designed with the safety of both the workers and consumers in mind, utilising plastic screens and a counter service.
Staff wearing protective masks and gloves will take orders from the counter at safe distance and then pick items for the customer on demand. There will also be a fridge filled daily with a selection of meals and deli items for NHS staff that can be collected simply by showing their ID.
The quality of the produce available will be second-to-none, with ready meals supplied by the likes of My Thai, Bengal Brasserie and more local heroes. Prime cuts of meat will be available from Taplin’s Butchers of Bradford, who have been going strong since 1916.
Baked goods, vegetarian and vegan options will also be on display. In It Together will be open from 7am – 7PM Monday to Saturday. On Sunday’s, volunteers will be on-site all day baking and preparing fresh meals.
In It Together will be available to those close to the city centre deli via Deliveroo, Just Eat and Uber Eats. There will also be a personal shopping and delivery service offered help more senior citizens living outside of central Leeds.
