Ackroyd’s Bakery in Redford, Mich. is a third-generation family business that makes traditional and modern UK and Scottish meats, sweets and savories, and also imports groceries, candies and gifts from across the pond.
The bakery has been shipping its made-from-scratch products across the United States for several years, and as people have been searching for more ways to get food and groceries delivered to their homes during the coronavirus pandemic, it has been incredibly busy.
To give its customers a special stay-at-home treat and to help out the first responders who help us, Ackroyd’s launched its “Stay at Family Home Pack.” The pack includes four chicken pot pies, four macaroni and cheese pies and 12 Scottish shortbread cookies.
For each pack purchased, $5 goes to support an organization serving first responders. Among the organizations supported so far include the Pleasant Ridge Foundation and Rescue Detroit Restaurants + Feed Healthcare Heroes.
“We are incredibly grateful to be able to ship our food all over the United States. We also recognize that without our local first responders keeping us safe and putting their lives on the line every day, we may not have the opportunity to serve you,” the company says. “We encourage everyone to stay home. No matter where you live in the United States, we will ship to your door.”
