Good Food Works: Building skills and employment
05/11/2020 15:15 16:45

Hear from award winning social enterprises using good food to upskill, train and support people into employment 

Following the 2020 Urban Food Awards, this webinar focuses on some of this year’s winners who are creating good food jobs and helping Londoners improving their skills.

Never has there been a more important time to think about how we can support good jobs and employment.  This webinar shares the stories of Urban Food Award winners running social enterprises that create good food jobs and encourage integration.

The line-up for the event includes:  

  • Migrateful: an award winning enterprise who help refugees and asylum seekers on their journey to employment and independence. They run cookery classes led by migrant chefs promoting integration and access employment.
  • Breadwinners: a social enterprise and charity supports refugees and young people seeking asylum into their first job in the UK. They offer training, mentoring and work opportunities selling artisan organic bread at London’s best markets
  • Kings Cross Impact hub: supporting social enterprise, including those working in the field of good food through their Feeding the City initiative. 

The event, organised by London Food Link at Sustain, provided an opportunity to discuss the policies and actions needed to support people into good food employment.

The webinar explores 

  • How enterprises support skills and job creation and how this benefits the business as a whole?
  • What are the opportunities for good food job creation and why is this important for the wider community?
  • What are the benefits of the social enterprise model and what can we do to support more of them?

The Urban Food Awards shines a spotlight on those who really make a difference to people and planet through their good food work. Find the full list of winners and join the webinar to celebrate this year’s good food heroes!  

The webinar was hosted on Zoom
