School Food Matters runs ongoing food education programmes that give children hands-on exposure to cooking, gardening, healthy lifestyles, and more! These provide companies with varied sponsorship opportunities. We are happy to discuss new sponsorship options with you.

To view some of our ongoing projects, check out our Young Marketeers project with Borough Market or our Schools To Market programme with Whole Foods Market.

Cause-related marketing/co-branding

Partnering with School Food Matters can bolster your marketing objectives and increase sales, all while improving food education in primary and secondary schools in the UK.

With consumers saying they are more likely to buy from companies associated with charitable work, partnering with SFM becomes a no-brainer!

Have a product or campaign you’d like to develop with us? Let’s start a conversation

Employee activities

Why limit your employees to typical team-building exercises? What about an evening of culinary fun with a top chef? A bread-making workshop? A day on a farm with your employees’ family members? A fascinating day learning about the wonderful world of bees?

Together we can develop activities for your employees that help bring them together and increase morale – all while supporting School Food Matters! Each corporate activity will reflect our work in local schools. 

Organising a fundraising event at work

Whether you want to organise a bake-off competition, a pub quiz, a dance-a-thon or another fun activity with your colleagues, funds raised for School Food Matters will directly support our mission and help us reach more children.

Gifts in kind

Are you able to provide cooking equipment or gardening tools? A gift in kind can help us kit out school kitchens and gardens across the city.

Have something else to give instead? Great! We can use gifts as prizes for raffles and auctions. A gift can be a physical product or a voucher. 

Payroll giving and matching

Payroll giving is an easy, tax-effective way for your staff to donate directly from their gross salary. Matching those donations not only helps motivate your employees but also shows them you’re committed to charitable giving.
