Employees have also helped provide the food and wrapped 60 boxes for meals to be delivered in, including a hand-written card to help bring some festive cheer to the recipients.

Cathy Lafferty, human resources director at Karro Food, said: “The work that the Malton and Norton Community Kitchen is doing to support those in need is absolutely vital, especially during what has been a very tough year.

“If this year has taught us anything, it is the importance of our community, family and friends.”
