PARTNERSHIPS

Partnerships that deliver lasting social impact

These days, loads of organisations are looking to deliver practical social impact which goes beyond ESG goals. And employees who can pick and choose are increasingly keen to work for companies whose values align with their own. A partnership with us will deliver on both.

Our partners usually start off as teambuilding clients, and then enjoy it so much that they decide to get more deeply involved. We then come up with a partnership plan that matches their aims and ours.

We are delighted to be able to partner with Cook for Good on this incredible initiative, helping to fight food and health poverty and social isolation in Central London.

Here are some of the ways that our current partners are working more closely with us:

Supporting community health and wellbeing by sponsoring a cooking class series, like our Men’s Grub Club or Cook for Heath.

Helping community members into work by funding an employment programme, such as our Community Brigade

Driving innovation and getting ideas off the ground by sponsoring a specific pilot or new project (such as Soup for Good, our forthcoming book of recipes and stories... contact us if you'd like to know more).

If you’re ready to take the next step on your journey with us, please get in touch.

Helping you meet UN Sustainable Development Goals

A partnership with Cook for Good can take you more than half-way towards meeting the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. From tackling poverty to creating opportunities for decent work, here are the ways that working with us can help.

We’re helping to tackle the root causes of food insecurity and poverty for people in low-income households, by providing access to affordable food, and a range of advice including cooking on a budget, accessing employment and debt management.

We’re also working to tackle the impact of food insecurity and the cost of living crisis through our Community Pantry, where members can pick up a basket of food worth around £35 for just £3.50 a week

We’re providing free cooking classes and courses for residents aged 5 to 85, teaching them to cook healthy, budget-friendly meals from scratch. And we support mental wellbeing by creating opportunities for people to connect with each other.

Our Community Brigade programme is providing local residents with skills and experience to help them access jobs in catering and hospitality, including at our team building events.

We’ve built a Community Kitchen, developed a Community Pantry, and created an innovative social trading model that brings businesses and communities together, for the benefit of both.

One in four of our community say they are in a desperate financial situation; by addressing food insecurity and barriers to work, we’re helping people from a diverse range of backgrounds tackle health and financial inequalities.

Our Community Pantry and Community Kitchen were disused spaces which we have brought back into community use. They are safe, inclusive places where people of all ages can come together, eat together and learn together.

In 2023-24 we redistributed 10 tonnes of surplus food through our Pantry. We also teach residents how to make meals from ingredients that might otherwise have been wasted.
