Beyond Food Foundation

The Fishmongers’ Company’s Charitable Trust is proud to be able to support the Beyond Food Foundation during this crisis. Its mission is to inspire people who have experienced, or who have been at risk of, homelessness, to gain meaningful employment, through training courses at Brigade restaurant together with wraparound support

The charity, which has had to temporarily close Brigade, is currently supporting its own beneficiaries, as well as other vulnerable people across London and the UK, remotely. Building on its experience of advising on a range of issues, including accessing housing and benefits, managing finances and mental health support, the Beyond Food Foundation is operating a telephone helpline is supporting those who are e struggling with financial hardship, mental health issues, feeling lonely or in need of food supplies. The charity is also offering remote training to its current and past trainees and emergency grants to those who have lost their jobs in hospitality.

The Fishmongers’ Company’s Charitable Trust is delighted to award Beyond Food Foundation an emergency grant in order to help them to support those most in need during this difficult time.

We are pushing every day for further funding so that we can keep supporting vulnerable people…, and we are so thankful to organisations such as The Fishmonger’s Company, who have long been supporters of Beyond Food, for their amazing support in this time of crisis.
