The Food Foundation

Charity registered in Scotland SC038453

We are a charitable Social Enterprise whose main purpose is to provide personal and vocational development to people in the community who are disadvantaged due to age, illness or a mental or Physical disability.
We achieve this by providing a blended learning environment, a mix of e-learning and hands on training, delivered in a real working catering business.
We generate income through our catering business, however we also rely on grants and funding to cover our costs.
