In addition to our local teams supporting many charities around the country, we are also proud to work in close collaboration with the following charities who do amazing work in our industry
The Springboard Charity helps young people achieve their potential and nurtures unemployed people of any age into work. It helps alleviate poverty by supporting disadvantaged and underprivileged people into sustainable employment within hospitality, leisure and tourism.
Hospitality Action offers vital assistance to all who work, or have worked within hospitality in the UK including help, advice and support whenever times get tough, whatever the challenge from physical illness or mental health issues: from financial difficulty and family problems to addiction.
The Prince’s Trust is a youth charity that helps disadvantaged young people aged 11 to 30 get into jobs, education and training. Bidfood work with The Prince’s Trust to deliver Get Started programmes, which teach young people specialist and social skills, through real and meaningful challenges. The ‘Get Started with Cooking’ initiative is a week-long intensive course for young people interested in getting into hospitality careers. The course teaches young people valuable kitchen skills, basic food hygiene and offers further opportunities for mentoring, enrolment in local college courses, apprenticeships and employment opportunities.
FareShare is the UK’s biggest charity fighting hunger and food waste. It takes surplus good-to-eat food, which is unsold or unwanted by the food industry, sorts it in one of its 30 regional warehouses, and passes it onto a network of more than 10,500 charities and charity groups. These organisations then turn the food into meals for vulnerable families and individuals, many of whom are at risk of hunger.
