Rethink Food CIC
Re-Think Food is a Leeds-based social enterprise with a mission to remove hunger as a barrier to children’s learning. It was founded by two teachers who introduced a free breakfast for all children in their school, developed a community café within this school and started collecting surplus food from supermarkets and making the food available via a market stall at the school gates. The legacy of this project was the creation of Rethink Food. They now provide schools with a weekly delivery of food, access to an education resource – Tower Garden – talks at school assemblies, pupil workshops and staff training opportunities. Re-Think Food is using funding from The Fore to design and create an online learning platform for school-based staff, enabling the organisation to extend its reach to more schools even during social distancing.
