The Antonio Carluccio Foundation has generously provided £7,000 in new grant funding to support the critically important work of the Highgate Newtown Community Centre in its response to the Covid19 pandemic.
The HNCC is currently focussing all resources on supporting the vulnerable in the local community in the provision of essential supplies and food. The grant will provide vital support to the HNCC meals on wheels service and in a very real sense support the health of many people at this time.
Antonio Carluccio was a London based chef and restauranteur. Known as the ‘godfather of Italian gastronomy’ Antonio set up a Foundation to carry forward his legacy before he passed away in November 2017. The Foundation works to alleviate hunger worldwide also helping disadvantaged cooks and chefs entering the hospitality industry.
