"A groundbreaking supper club project provides an opportunity for young people to move from temporary accommodation into more permanent homes in the rental market.
After sell out series in Brick Lane and Finsbury Park, Fat Macy’s heads to the Printworks Kitchen in December for a unique Christmas event series.
Fat Macy’s, creation of young entrepreneurs Meg Doherty and Fred Andrews, is a social enterprise that engages young Londoners living in temporary accommodation in a voluntary cooking scheme and pays them the equivalent of £10 per hour via a trust fund that can only be used for a rental deposit on a house.
Whilst saving for a deposit, the young volunteer chefs also gain food hygiene and health and safety qualifications.
Fat Macy’s innovative model came about after witnessing first-hand the issues young residents at YMCA North London were having moving into their own home after staying in supported accommodation."
