Square Food Foundation


Cookery School and Community Kitchen Square Food Foundation (SFF) has announced an exciting programme of events that it will be delivering during Bristol’s Food Connections Festival from 1st-11th May 2014.

Square Food Foundation works with groups across Bristol to showcase how cooking can change people’s lives. “Everyone we meet understands that cooking and eating are universal levellers; tools in connecting people, a starting point for conversations and that improving skills gives choices. At SFF we teach people from all walks of life to cook good food from scratch; masterclasses subsidise our community cooking programme — and in doing this we bridge the gap, this feels uniquely Bristol”, says Barny Haughton, Founder & Director of Square Food Foundation.

Kicking off their activity at Bristol’s Food Connections Festival, SFF are locating their team to St George’s Hall to cook dinner for finalists and VIPs of BBC Radio 4’s Food & Farming Awards. Barny and his team of chefs (including adults and children from SFF’s community classes) will be cooking a feast showcasing ingredients from those nominated for the awards.

Other bespoke SFF activities during the Food Connections Festival include:
