The Queen – sorry Olivia Colman – came to visit our Emergency Meal service! 👸 . Its not every day an award winning movie star visits your charity programme & is not only lovely but rolls up her sleeves and gets stuck in! 🍲🥗 . Accompanied by @mrevgenylebedev & a team from the @evening.standard she first visited @thefelixproject food depot then came to us to make over 100 meals with the @angelina.dalston team. 🍲 . She then joined our cargo riders, accompanying Clarence & Baba to do some non-contact deliveries around Hackney. 🚲🚲🚲🚲 . Meal recipient Lynn who attended MIH cookery classes in pre-COVID times, was brilliant when the food arrived. She rubbed her eyes and said, "I've not got my glasses on but you look just like Olivia Colman." Classic. 😊 .
