22 May 2017

Sustain is working in partnership with the National Union of Students (NUS) on their Student Eats programme to offer the following.

Current application deadline: 23rd June 2017

Food co-ops (last chance to apply). Food co-ops and food buying groups are terms that are often used interchangeably to describe a food outlet that is run on a not-for-profit basis to give people access to good food at affordable prices. They can include food assemblies, groups that purchase produce in bulk to get discounts, vegetable bag or box schemes, fruit and veg stalls or mobile food sellers. Mentoring is with Sustain

Food preserving enterprises
(last chance to apply). Preserve making is a fantastic way to reduce food waste by preserving fruit, and even vegetables, traditionally created when there was an abundance of seasonal produce. Methods to preserve food can include: pickling, bottling, juicing, dehydrating or even fermenting foods like kimchi and of course making jams, jellies or chutneys. Mentoring is with sustain

Open category
. If you're interested in setting up a student-led food enterprise that isn't a food co-op or food preserving enterprise then there’s also the open category with mentoring from NUS. Your idea will need to be:
1. student-led
2. a social enterprise
3. based on local sustainable food
