Every purchase of these pasta care packages includes a £5 donation to Age UK

In light of the coronavirus outbreak and subsequent increased demand on our food supplies, pasta is one of the most in-demand items in the supermarket right now. But one company not only wants to help those most in need get their hands on an easy-to-prepare meal, they’re also donating to support other vulnerable people in the process.

Pasta Evangelists, a nationwide fresh pasta delivery service, has unveiled a special care package in partnership with Age UK. The concept is simple, yet effective: whenever you order and send the kit of three recipes to the door of someone who really needs one right now, the charity receives a £5 donation.

‘We recognise it’s harder than usual to visit the elderly and other family members, friends and colleagues we care for,’ they explain. ‘Our pasta care packages are delivered to your loved one’s door and include three delicious and nutritious recipes, as well as easy-to-follow instructions to prepare each dish in under 10 minutes.’

‘From all of us here at Pasta Evangelists, we wish you and your relatives well and thank you for supporting this initiative.’

Of course, if you’re currently self-isolating or unable to track down pasta in your local shops, you could also order a parcel for yourself. Not only will you receive three delicious dinners that take mere minutes to make, you can also enjoy the knowledge that you’re supporting an extremely worthwhile cause. If that’s not a win-win situation, we don’t know what is.
