FOOD DELIVERIES, AND INFORMATION ABOUT KOSHER FOR PESACH GOODS

We wanted to share with you some information about local food suppliers. As the government advice is to not leave your home if at all possible, most of our local suppliers are providing delivery services to your door. If you are having trouble getting a delivery slot with one of the large supermarkets, you should be able to receive most of your supplies from them.

The following suppliers are providing delivery. This list is not exhaustive and it is worth calling your preferred supplier, chances are they are doing it too.

PESACH

Due to our circumstances, the KLBD has amended the guidelines for Pesach this year. Please click here to download.

Food for the seder and beyond can be ordered from many kosher suppliers and caterers. As above, if you have a favourite, contact them and ask them what they can send you. 

But some suggestions are:

Ivor Silverman (as above) order by email by 30 March

Jasmine Catering order by 1 April on www.pesachbyjasmine.com
Hermolis - will supply food and even crockery etc if you don't usually make Pesach at home - order on 020 8066 3309

Josepha White - minimum order 10 meals - order on 07879 658 653. Requires 5 working days notice

These are just suggestions and not recommendations. Please do remember to plan ahead and leave plenty of notice for your deliveries. And ask around, many smaller establishments and caterers will be glad of the business at this time. 

Please stay home and let the food come to you!
