A small gesture of gratitude to the heroes of the NHS.
Today marks Mowgli Street Food’s last day in operation until further notice, following the Government’s announcement earlier this week that the public is advised to undertake further social distancing measures to stop the spread of COVID-19.
Confirming the decision to close in a social media post, the much-loved Indian restaurant also announced that they’d be offering up free food to NHS workers, as a symbol of gratitude for their hard work during this incredibly tough time.
The announcement reads: “Any NHS workers dining in Mowgli today and tomorrow with their NHS ID will receive food for free.
“It is our way is clapping you from our balconies our dear heroes we thank you for all you do and all you will do over the next months.”
Workers will be able to select a meal of their choice at both Manchester sites, the Corn Exchange and University Green, as well as across the UK at the restaurant’s other sites in Liverpool, Birmingham, Nottingham and Sheffield.
The heartfelt announcement made customers aware of their decision to close until it is safe to re-open, saying:
“After yesterday’s Government announcement and more importantly after watching the plight of our Italian brothers and sisters – our focus at Mowgli is now on curbing the spread of Covid 19. Nothing else matters.”
There are currently no further details of when Mowgli Street Food will re-open, however fans can get one last meal in tonight only.
