Ehla.Eat cooks for NHS

Greenwich Market trader Ehla.Eat cooks for the NHS

South London based Greenwich Market food trader Ehla.Eat is, together with some 15 other London based street food traders, serving up weekend lunches and dinners for the hard working NHS staff at Lewisham Hospital. This not for profit initiative is backed by Sports Banger, Club Mexicana and INK. Sports Banger design and sell NHS T-shirts and hoodies  (www.sportsbanger.com) and then use this money to cover the costs for the food. 

Ehla explains: “Our plans for summer 2020 – including  opening up 2 new sites in Central London, award ceremonies and TV filming – flew out the window with the arrival of COVID-19. Greenwich Market, our home for 6 years, has temporarily closed and so we decided to help feed the  hardworking staff at NHS Lewisham with our super nutritious, joyfully colourful and tasty  Eastern Mediterranean Food. All made possible by sponsors  Sports Banger, Club Mexicana and INK. Thank you!”

On his Twitter account (@BangerJonny) Jonny Banger commented;” It’s been quite amazing working local to local rather than throwing air money into a big totaliser trust fund. Thank you all!”

Ehla.Eat have also set up home deliveries to SE3, SE10, SE13 and SE12 delivering vegetable/ fruit boxes and Eastern Mediterranean groceries – customers wanting to purchase from this delicious Mediterranean pantry should contact eat.ehla@gmail.com
