Nourish @ FireFit – Medicash

Thanks to a grant of £10,000 from Medicash Charitable Trust, FireFit was able to kick-start Café Recharge, as part of Nourish @ FireFit.

The project looked at tackling food poverty in Toxteth, Liverpool, by ensuring young people and their families could access low cost or free, healthy food.

Launched in 2019, the team were able to hire a full time chef, new kitchen equipment and the Youth Board helped design the space.

Since opening, we’ve served over 4,800 meals, including 2,300 free lunches at our school holiday camp.

Serving nutritious meals from only £1.00 for young members, they’re enjoying trying new flavours and choices each week.
