Employee Activities

Why limit your employees to typical team building exercises? What about an evening of culinary fun with a top chef? A bread making workshop? A day out at a farm with employees’ family members? A gardening afternoon with a celebrity gardener?

Together we can develop activities for your employees that help bring them together and increase morale – all while supporting School Food Matters! Each corporate activity would be paired with similar activities for children in local schools. 

Organising a Fundraising Event at Work

Whether you want to organise a Bake Off competition, a pub quiz, a dance-a-thon or another fun activity with your colleagues to help us improve the future of children across the UK, we’re here to help you with ideas and advice. 

Gifts in Kind

Are you able to provide culinary or gardening tools? A gift in kind can help us furnish student kitchens and gardens across the city.

Have something else to give instead? Great! We can use gifts as prizes for raffles and auctions. A gift can be a physical product or a voucher. 

Payroll Giving and Matching

Payroll giving is an easy, tax-effective way for your staff to donate directly from their gross salary. Matching those donations not only helps motivate your employees, it also shows them your commitment to charity!
