Some Ideas to Try…

Take Away & Delivery

Travels Well – Why not offer those staff heading home from a long shift or discharged patients an easy take home meal?

Hand-held – For busy staff looking to grab & go why not try introducing tubs or cartons (hot or cold)? Chilli, Spicy Vegemince™ Burritos, Thai Curry – the options are endless!

Picnic PacksRice salads and simple picnic dishes make a great option for the hot weather, so staff can get outside and enjoy some well-earned vitamin D.

Care Packs - Create care packs including Tilda rice for those leaving hospital/residential care or even local food banks or charities – to show you care.

Team Building Supper Club – give your hard-working front-line team a treat with a dinner party in a box to cook at home and join online.


When restrictions are lifted why not hold a summer party outside with picnic favourites using Tilda.
