Healthy fast food chain Leon is to begin trialling an online delivery service next week offering grocery boxes and ready meals.

The Feed Britain delivery service will initially only be available within the radius of the M25, but the company is hoping to expand its reach nationwide as early as possible.

Last month, Leon announced it would continue to keep its sites open​ during the Coronavirus crisis.

CEO and founder John Vincent said the decision was not financially driven, but that the company has been inundated with requests from NHS hospitals and other people to continue serving food.

Some of the chain’s restaurant sites have been repurposed as shops stocking essential groceries and ready meals that are for takeaway, or delivery via Deliveroo and Uber Eats.

Leon is also currently helping to spearhead a crowdfund campaign​ alongside the likes of Tortilla, Dishoom and Pizza Pilgrims, to help feed NHS staff working on the front line of the Coronavirus crisis.

The ‘Feed the NHS’ campaign​, which launched last Friday (27 March), aims to raise £1m in order to help feed NHS workers one hot healthy meal each day.

It has so far raised more than £750,000.
