From food to fork - Morrisons donation helps us Thrive in the kitchen!

27/03/2018

Thrive is delighted to have received a grant for £6,500 from the Morrisons Foundation. 

The money is being spent buying equipment for the new, fully-adapted kitchen at the charity's head office in Beech Hill, which has been designed with disability in mind. 

It includes height adjustable workspaces and cookers making it much easier for client gardeners with a range of disabilities to be able to cook what they have grown in the garden and eat together, emphasising the whole food to fork ethos.

Thrive needs to equip the kitchen and will spend the money on a tea trolley, food mixers, saucepans of various sizes suitable for induction hobs, and a range of adapted kitchen and catering equipment. 

Paul Scott, regional centre manager at Thrive, Beech Hill, said: "We will also use the money to train a number of our staff to the required level in food hygiene which will allow us to explore additional qualification offerings in the future so we can teach our clients hygiene and cooking skills."
