Shops encouraged to serve up a meal-for-a-meal

A Manchestersocial enterprise is calling on the nation’s fish and chip shops to help feed the homeless by introducing a meal-for-a-meal deal.

Foodinate, a not-for-profit organisation, matches restaurants and takeaways with a food-giving charity in the same area. When a customer chooses a meal marked with the Foodinate logo from a participating restaurant’s menu, a plate of hot food is served up to a homeless person via the pre-selected charity.

So far the initiative has provided 8,000 hot meals to people across Manchester but the company is keen for food establishments across the UK to join the venture.

George’s Dining Room and Bar, owned by ex-footballer Ryan Giggs, has already signed up to the scheme. Ryan comments: “Foodinate has been a success. We really liked the simplicity of the concept from the outset and we are proud to be one of the first restaurants to sign-up to it.
“If you own a restaurant and you’re wondering what you can do to help your communities - this would be a great way to help."

Fish and chip shops interested in signing up to the Foodinate campaign, can contact for more information.
