St John restaurant to offer helping hand to social food enterprises

Staff at Fergus Henderson's St John restaurant will be offering their years of wisdom to socially minded enterprises in the capital as part of a new support scheme.

The St John Pass It On scheme, which is run in conjunction with sustainability food and farming group London Food Link, will see the team at St John offer advice and mentoring to those running charitable, community and social enterprise eateries and other foodservice enterprises in London.

Their support could also include allowing eligible applicants on site to learn alongside St John staff, as well as visits from members of the team.

Announcing the scheme in London Food Link's publication The Jellied Eel, St John's Trevor Gulliver said: "We know that we have a responsibility for much in the wider world, but also wanted to do something local, something that our folk could become engaged with directly and see the benefit of too."

LFL co-ordinator Chris Young added: "Since 2002 we've worked to connect, support and celebrate people who grow, make, cook, sell, save, forage and teach good food in the capital.

"The St John team have so much experience, knowledge and skill between them, and it's really exciting to be able to help them pass it on."

Business owners are invited to apply on LFL's website if they "run an independent eatery/foodservice business in London and need help with any aspect of the business".
