Liverpool is, undoubtedly, a hotbed for gastronomical ventures! The competition is fierce and new businesses will have to stand out one way or another to make an impact.
Exciting enterprise, Soul Fillers, is anything but another catering operation; Soul Fillers pride themselves on producing fabulous food with a social conscience! While creating knock-out dishes, Soul Fillers provide opportunities in the catering industry for people with learning disabilities and mental health concerns.
Just over a year ago Liverpool-grown organisation MOWLL (Moving On With Life & Learning) met acclaimed chef Sky Glover, winner of Young Entrepreneur for Women in Business and CEO of Community Interest Company ‘Happy Go Cooking’. With both organisations’ values based firmly in supporting individuals to grow in confidence, learn new skills and become employable, an innovative new culinary project was born.
Focusing initially on sharing practical culinary skills and promoting healthy eating on a budget, the project has gone from strength to strength and become so popular that participants and Sky are setting up their own fully-fledged catering operation. The business will have strong social objectives and provide training and employment opportunities for people with disabilities.
With regular catering jobs under their belt, as well as weddings and private parties, Soul Fillers will launch their business in style with FRESH on 28th November at Camp and Furnace.
Catering for all tastes and dietary requirements, the four courses served at FRESH are based on the premise that the food will speak for itself… and it does! We know because we went to the menu tasting – the food packed a real punch and we can’t wait to get more of it.
At FRESH, every course will be matched by the finest in local live music. The line-up boasts the marvellous Mersey Belles, former Liverpool-based harpist Maev McDaid, roof-raising brass ensemble Hardcore Hornography, and headliners Up for Arts Community Choir. Is matching food with music more exciting than matching food with wine? You bet!
