Venue group thestudio has announced a partnership with social enterprise Foodinate to help provide food for those in need.

The venue collection will offer ‘Foodinate Fancy Cakes’ to every client that makes a booking, and for every cake sold Foodinate will provide a nourishing meal to a local person in need. 

Julian Kettleborough, commercial director at thestudio, said: “When we were approached by Foodinate about partnering, it was a no-brainer for us. Food is firmly at the centre of thestudio’s ethos and customer experience, so our team is always working hard to ensure that every meal is up to the highest standard. As a result, we’ve been thinking about how we can spread this love of food far and wide: we’re hoping that our partnership with Foodinate means that this helps achieve this, reaching even further afield, while giving our delegates yet another tasty option. We hope our customers rally behind the initiative and together we can show that giving never tasted so good.”

The partnership was confirmed at last week’s seasonal menu tasting, hosted by thestudiomanchester. As well as offering those in attendance the chance to try, discuss, and feedback on thestudio’s upcoming winter menu, the event also introduced Caroline Stevenson, the founder of Foodinate, to its guests.

Stevenson spoke about the initiative and the life-changing impact Foodinate has already had across the UK, thanks to its generous partners: since launching in 2015, the social enterprise has provided almost 9,000 meals to people in need across the country.

Stevenson said: “We can’t thank thestudio enough for supporting us. As a prominent figure in the events and catering industry, we hope that thestudio will be a pioneer, challenging other businesses to follow its lead. I hope this is the start of a fruitful, long-lasting relationship, changing the lives of those in need, one meal at a time.”
