Cook & Dine

Our annual special fundraising lunch sees industry guests and volunteers celebrate and showcase all that is great about the UK’s hospitality industry. The premise of the unique fundraising event is simple; to bring everyone who works in the hospitality industry together, no matter their background, experience or seniority and raise funds to help support people facing homelessness find and forge new careers in hospitality.

We are thrilled that this year's event helped to raise £21,000 for our charity which will allow us to support a further 250 people facing homelessness into jobs within hospitality over the next 12 months. Currently we work alongside 85 hospitality employers and 87 charity partners but we are looking to partner with more forward thinking hospitality businesses to offer employment to those facing homelessness, prison leavers and veterans.
