6500 meals delivered to the NHS

Cemal + Ali, we are two Kurdish best friends born in Turkey and have lived in Hackney (East London) our whole lives, we launched 215Hackney Cafe/Restaurant serving Middle Eastern Food from Isreal, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Turkey and Kurdistan. We decided to partner with WarChild UK to support children affected by wars from all around the world and donate 20% of our profits.

As of 17th March, we decided to shut our doors to help fight the Corona Virus spread in line with the Government’s Strategy, us shutting our doors does not mean we need to sit back and wait for the Government alone to tackle the issue – we as citizens of London need to stand by each other and do whatever we can to support any institutions directly fighting the pandemic. Where we all need to stay inside to protect ourselves and also our loved ones who are within the high-risk category – we strongly believe some of us need to support and protect the amazing humans risking their lives to save ours.

We are now looking to raise money to support the courageous + amazing NHS front line staff who are and will be working tirelessly around the clock to take care of anyone who falls ill from the Corona Virus Pandemic.

All funds raised will be used to pay for food, supplies and staff who will be cooking and delivering the food to Local Hospitals such as Homerton, Whipps Cross, Royal Free and North Middlesex – we will deliver food to any hospital staff in need of food to either eat during working hours or take home after a long hard shift taking care of patients and risking their own health/lives.

The team at 215Hackney has decided to use our resources and abilities to support the NHS staff through this historically difficult time.

As an independent business we value the common morals of helping the local community. We’re in this together and now is the time we all unite and show solidarity.

We will be providing constant updates regarding progress and our efforts to support the NHS Front Line Staff – if anyone wants to reach out to us directly and knows any hospitals or people in need please do not hesitate to email me directly at

This moment shall not break us but will only bring us closer.
