Published: 8th September 2020

The National Association of Care Catering (NACC) has revealed the line-up of finalists for the NACC Awards 2020.

The prestigious awards recognise and celebrate teams and individuals from across the care catering sector that go above and beyond – from care homes to community services, such as Meals on Wheels and Lunch Clubs.

All the finalists exemplify true innovation, excellence and dedication that create tangible benefits for residents, clients and colleagues – incredible attributes that have been at the heart of the care catering sector’s frontline contribution throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

The NACC Awards 2020 winners will be revealed at a special virtual awards ceremony on Thursday 8 October, which will be attended by NACC members, industry colleagues, partners and friends and special guests.

Sue Cawthray, national chair of the NACC, said: “Recognising and celebrating the hard work and dedication of care caterers up and down the country has never been so important. It’s been an incredibly challenging year as teams have responded and adapted to the stark impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Whether in a care home or delivering to the elderly and vulnerable living in the community, they’ve all stepped up to increased pressure and selflessly ensured those entrusted to their care continue to receive delicious and nutritious meals in an enjoyable, dignified way; delivering regular moments of joy in difficult times.

“As with events across the foodservice and hospitality industry, the pandemic has stopped us from holding our annual gala awards dinner, but there’s simply no way we’re going to let the opportunity to celebrate our wonderful sector pass us by. The virtual awards ceremony will be a wonderful occasion for us to share with colleagues and friends as we honour the exceptional contribution of care caterers in this extraordinary year.”
