How to get Greek food at home – and help two great causes

Lakis Greek Kitchen

You can get an authentic taste of Greece and help two worthy charity causes – without leaving home.

Lakis Greek Kitchen is an annual Greek taverna usually based in the Walsall that raises money for good causes.

But due to the pandemic, it’s unable to open its doors to the public this year in which would have been its 7th year since the charity was established in 2014.

But LGK have partnered with Theos Food Company, who have launched an online shop with their tasty products, and Street Kitchen Brothers, who will be delivering Greek food directly to people’s doors.

LGK has launched Kleftiko Weekends, with the lamb wrapped parcels cooked with Cyprus potatoes, available for home delivery.

The clay oven speciality will be available every Saturday and Sunday until the end of July.

They cost £13 a potion, including the meat, potatoes and Greek salad.

This year there are two selected campaigns.

Profits will go to Isabelle Mason, nine, from Burntwood, who suffers from a rare condition called Rett Syndrome, which attacks the motor-neurone system.

The money raised will go towards building Isabelle a summer house and helping to redevelop the family garden into a sensory space.

LGK will also be actively supplying Acorns Children’s Hospice.

Panikos Panayiotou, CEO of the charity, said; ”We are delighted that we have found a way to continue our annual programme through the kind generosity of our sponsors Theos Food, who will be donating some of their profits from their online shop to these causes, and Street Kitchen Brothers, who will be delivering the kleftiko across the city through their Greek food service.

“It’s an honour to be part of Isabelle’s journey and be able to support Acorns Hospice who help so many children, particularly during these difficult and unstable times. We ask that everyone supports this programme”.
