- Mother Emma Frost, from Blacon, Cheshire, had a tough time last October
- She was moved to tears when she discovered shopping bags outside her home
- Friendly stranger had left a note offering to drop off daily lunches for her five children
A mother was left in tears after a nice stranger left bags of groceries and lunches for her five children in a random act of kindness.
Emma Frost, from Blacon, Cheshire, was struggling last October when she found two large bags of groceries and five kids’ lunch bags on her doorstep.
The stranger left a note informing Emma that the donation was a ‘gift from our family to yours’ and that if she needed it, they would deliver children’s lunches every day.
Mamma Emma said the gift was “totally unexpected” and left her in tears as she thanked the stranger “from the bottom of her heart.”

“My oldest went to the door because we weren’t expecting anyone and found the grocery bags and five kids lunch bags,” Emma said.
When she came in, she told me someone had left the store with a note. When I read the note, I tore up. I was shocked. It was totally unexpected.
The heartwarming note read, “Hi Emma, I’m serving food in the community and someone put your name up to receive one. I also do lunch packs for children Monday through Friday.
If you don’t want to receive the kids’ lunches, drop me a line. Otherwise, I put them down between 10:30 pm and 12:00 pm.

‘You don’t have to come to the door, I’ll knock, fall and leave. A gift from our family to yours. ‘
The act of kindness took place in October, shortly after a motion by Labor to extend its half-term school meals scheme for children was rejected by MPs.
It came amid a campaign led by Manchester United star Marcus Rashford for the government to fund meals for children in need during the Covid-19 lockdowns.
Emma at the time criticized the choice, insisting that several families would have been left in a “ worse situation ” than she, saying the donation couldn’t have come at a better time because she isolated herself.
‘I think the government made the wrong decision because there are more families in a worse situation than us, and they could really work with the help.
“This will be a great help for us this week as we isolate ourselves because my partner’s brother has a positive case of coronavirus.”

The gesture was well received by Emma’s children, and the mother thanked the king’s stranger who she said was ‘brightening her day’ at a time when she was ‘mentally struggling’.
My 16-year-old was shocked, and my five and four-year-olds were both very excited, she said. “My 11-month-old just wanted the cookies he saw at the top of the bag.”
“I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart,” Emma added. ‘One day when I was struggling mentally, you brightened it up.
“It is much appreciated and it shows that there are still people who share their humanity.”
