A Maltese chef currently living in the UK has been named as one of Britain’s 50 most inspirational individuals. Throughout the pandemic, Nicole Pisani provided healthy meals to vulnerable children and their families.
She featured in The Independent’s Happy List 2020: Heroes in a Crisis, which celebrates 50 people who did extraordinary things during the pandemic.
“This all started when we set up the charity Chefs in Schools to change the perception of school food. Then COVID happened. We didn’t want all our work to go to waste… we wanted to find a way to save the charity. ”
Since kids were no longer going to school during the pandemic, she went from providing free meals to kids in schools, to preparing a hamper a week for families in need.
