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 will share 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
  • Social Enterprise UK: membership network and the national voice for social enterprise.

The event, organised by London Food Link at Sustain, will be hosted by Claire Pritchard, Chair of the London Food Board, and will also be an opportunity to discuss the policies and actions we need to support people into good food employment.

The webinar explored:  

  • 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?
