#greattasteawards winning Mr Lees Noodles are donating noodle cups to UK foodbanks and NHS staff.

After being told he had a few weeks to live, Mr Lees Noodles founder Damien Lee, cancer survivor (and noodle lover) is on a mission to help time-poor people eat better.

“What do you do when you’re told you only have a few weeks to live?That’s how long I was given when I was diagnosed with cancer.” explains Damien.

“I knew that for me at that time, a diet of no nasties, raw food and chemo, as well as having a determined mind and spirit was the only way to beat this thing. But all the time I craved my favourite guilty pleasure: instant noodles. But I just couldn’t because I knew they are full of junk, and that wasn’t going to help me fight the battle ahead.”

“I vowed when I got better to revolutionise noodles. And get better I did! I was given the all clear and Mr Lee’s Noodles was born.”

Mr Lees Noodles are donating 1 noodle cup to NHS frontline staff and UK foodbanks with every case of 6 purchased during the COVID-19 outbreak. Free P&P. Find out more at
