Tea for two? Tea for 2500! - Hertfordshire Community Meals

The award-winning social enterprise Hertfordshire Community Meals (HCM) has been celebrating Nutrition and Hydration Week 2015 with almost 2500 customers who receive its meals in their homes and in lunch clubs across Hertfordshire.

HCM, which will shortly be changing its name to Hertfordshire Independent Living Service (or HILS), provided customers with a free Cream Tea. Clients also received a specially-designed placemat (funded by Hertfordshire County Council) with helpful reminders about eating well and staying hydrated.

The gifts were provided as part of an international celebration "Worldwide Afternoon Tea" on 18 March 2015. This was held to help reduce under-nutrition and dehydration.

Sarah Wren, Chief Executive at HCM/ HILS, said "Eating well is one of life's greatest pleasures, but sometimes we may need a little help to make sure that we eat well and drink enough. It's been lovely to provide an extra treat this week for all our wonderful customers.  Over the next few months, our Community Dietitian will be helping us launch a range of new nutrition services designed to keep our clients well-nourished and independent”.
