Stein's at Home boxes raise £5k for charity
While its restaurant doors were closed, the family-run business supported Hospitality Action's 'Invisible Chips' campaign through sales of its at-home menus.
Customers helped Rick Stein Restaurants raise the money by donating a discretionary £3 to Stein's at Home menu box bills.
"Hospitality Action is a charity close to our hearts," says Jack Stein, chef director of Rick Stein Restaurants.
"We see first-hand the impact its support has on our industry, and specifically the crucial financial aid it provides to families hit hard by the lockdown of our industry.
"We're proud to partner with Hospitality Action raising Invisible Chip funds through our Stein's at Home menus, and will continue to raise as much as we can for the charity and in turn our colleagues across the industry."
The Invisible Chips campaign - which aims to support hospitality workers and families impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic - encourages customers and diners up and down the country to add a discretionary donation to their bill.
The Stein's at Home menu boxes - which celebrate their first birthday this June - have helped the 1975-founded restaurant business survive this recent extended period of closure.
Their production has also supported the livelihoods of trusted suppliers, farmers, fishermen and the Rick Stein team.
Customers can continue to support Hospitality Action, hospitality professionals and their families affected by the pandemic through purchase of the Stein's at Home menus online.
