Table Talk Foundation launches in Sussex to promote food education to children whilst supporting members of the hospitality sector.

Table Talk Foundation will work with well-established industry charities Adopt a School and Hospitality Action.

With a childhood obesity crisis in the UK and the hospitality sector still suffering the effects of Covid19, a new charity has been set up to tackle these issues in Sussex. 

Table Talk Foundation has been set up with two main purposes: 
1. Promote food education to children in Sussex. 
2. To support members of the hospitality sector who have fallen upon hard times. 

To help them achieve these goals, they have teamed up with industry heavyweights in the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts (and their charity Adopt a School) and Hospitality Action.
With 1 in 3 children leaving primary school overweight or obese, Table Talk Foundation will provide the funding for primary schools in Sussex to run the Adopt a School training programme which helps children to develop healthy eating habits and encourage an enthusiasm and interest in food.
They will also provide grants to Hospitality Action to help support members of the hospitality sector in the South-East. With over 660,000 losing their jobs because of Covid19, and the well-publicised issues with mental health and addiction issues, this is vital to the success not only of the sector but the wider economy.
Table Talk Foundation will be supported by nine trustees including celebrity chef and restaurateur, Mark Sargeant and Ridgeview Wine CEO, Tamara Roberts.
