Cavendish Venues donating 312 hot meals the vulnerable and disadvantaged this week! (Week 2)

January 7, 2020

Since Foodinate was founded just 3 years ago, they’ve provided over 130,000 meals to people in need across the UK. Their unique meal-for-meal approach means that whenever an event is ‘Foodinated’, each attendee automatically generates a meal for a local person in need, at no extra cost to the attendee or the organiser! This wonderfully simple course to tackling food poverty has earnt the social enterprise a plethora of awards, most recently being named the ‘Organisation Making A Difference In The Community’ at the This Is MCR awards 2019.

As an initial period, from January to May 2020, Cavendish Venues’ five Central London spaces will be the newest Foodinating locations. These are some of the coldest months of the year so it’s even more imperative that those in need receive this vital support.

The donated meals will be served at The Upper Room, a registered inner London charity providing hot, three-course meals 5 nights a week to homeless, vulnerable or otherwise disadvantaged people. What starts with food, however, certainly doesn’t end with food as the recipients are brought into a safe, nurturing environment where they can access life-changing support services. The Upper Room offers a range of completely free sessions and courses with the aim of securing and maintaining employment, including language support, CV writing workshops and one-to-one support with National Insurance registration or opening a bank account.

Partnering with Foodinate is part of a wider ethical strategy for Cavendish Venues, which also has a long-term sustainability strategy including a zero to landfill commitment, supporting local produce and teaming up with the Country Landowners Associations to plant 250 trees in Dorset. In 2019 alone, they’ve also sponsored an East London under 16s football club, the Society of Women Artists Annual Sculpture award and donated to over 50 charities!
