Dawn's Meals

by Linda Philo

Dawn Harper in her kitchen cooking meals

Many of you will have heard about Dawn Harper’s mammoth efforts to provide good, wholesome food for isolated people in our community throughout the pandemic.  This still continues.

Just before Christmas she made an application for funding to Asda’s ‘Feeding Communities’, the plan was to create and deliver Christmas dinners. 

Due to receiving so many applications, Asda were overwhelmed with requests, there was a delay in the confirmation.  However, after Christmas we heard that we had been successful but then had to give this a bit of a rethink... February isn’t the right time to deliver Christmas meals!

Dawn came up trumps again and contacted families in the community who would benefit from a sizeable hamper, all the contents purchased from Asda.  Asda themselves were incredibly supportive throughout the whole process and enabled Dawn to order online and have the food for the hampers delivered. 

These were gratefully received, and Dawn received several kind comments such as... ‘This has made such a difference to our family during this difficult time’ and ‘We would just like to say  thank you to Dawn for organising this!’

A big Thank you to both Dawn and ASDA!

Dawn Harper Menu

Dawn is now pleasing other people in the community, by providing a take-away breakfast and lunch menu from her cafe at the back of the Red Lion Pub, Fritchley, DE56 2FT

All food is freshly cooked to order using quality ingredients served Tuesday to Friday between 9.00 am and 1.30 pm. Delivery can also be arranged.

Pre order if possible please by telephoning or text Dawn on 07791 559394. Payment by cash or card.
