The Hargreaves Foundation supports Square Food Foundation

November 2020

The Trustees of The Hargreaves Foundation are pleased to confirm a grant has been made to Bristol based Square Food Foundation.

Through food and cooking Square Food works towards reducing hunger, improving health and building resilience. The funding will be used to support a group of local 16-18 year olds who are no longer in mainstream education attend a specialist cookery course ‘A Toolkit for Independent Living’ at The Park in Knowle West.

“We are delighted to support Square Food help a group of young people learn how to prepare a set of simple dishes. Not only does cooking from scratch encourage healthy eating, it is also a skill for life. Additionally the course drives attainment in basic literacy and numeracy, commitment, team work and resilience. We are also pleased to supply attendees with a set of basic kitchen equipment and store cupboard essentials for use at home. Our hope is that some of the students will be inspired to continue their studies within the catering and hospitality sector.”
