A Sheffield restaurant is giving away pizza again to key workers every day – here’s how you can claim free food

A Sheffield restaurant has once again pledged to donate free pizzas every day to key workers who are keeping the city moving during the coronavirus pandemic – and it is appealing for worthy recipients.

Proove, in Broomhill, launched a campaign called Tray a Day last year after it switched to offering deliveries and a takeaway service when the Government ordered eat-in establishments to shut in a bid to curb the spread of Covid-19.

The initiative allowed individuals to suggest key workers who could receive free wood-fired pizza delivered fresh to their workplace – this led to more than £25,000 worth of food being donated to NHS staff and those with roles in other critical sectors.

Now, nearly a year after the first national lockdown, Proove is reviving the scheme under the banner ‘Tray a Day 2.0’, with a slight change to the offering.

“Instead of delivering a pile of pizzas to the workplace, Proove have been prepping hundreds of their DIY [email protected] pizza kits to give away to local key workers, to cook up and enjoy in their downtime,” the restaurant says.

“Mates with a key worker? Married to a key worker? Related to a key worker, or a key worker yourself? Get in touch! NHS staff, nurses, doctors, paramedics, police, teachers, cleaners, pharmacy staff, firefighters, postal workers, shop owners, checkout assistants, shelf stackers, delivery drivers and all other key workers are welcome.”

The promotion will run from March 1 to 14.

“All you need to do to claim your free [email protected] kit is give the restaurant a call and get your collection slot booked, not forgetting to bring along your NHS/work ID and your face mask when you collect,” says Proove.

“There are a limited number of kits to give away per day, so make sure you call early to avoid disappointment.”

Call 0114 294 5185 to claim a kit.

Last year pizzas were dispatched to the coronary care and CT radiology units at the Northern General Hospital, Middlewood Ambulance Station, the Jessop maternity wing's antenatal clinic, Pingley Court Care Home in Woodseats and more.
