Sodexo Stop Hunger & The Bread and Butter Thing – Empowering Conversations


Client: The Bread and Butter Thing

Sodexo Stop Hunger Foundation’s partnership with The Bread and Butter Thing began in February 2021 with a six month grant aimed at increasing healthy start vouchers. The partnership continues to evolve and in early 2023 the need to support women from the communities where TBBT operate was recognised. Through their shared commitment to creating positive social impact, Sodexo Stop Hunger pledged just under £100,000 across the next three years for The Bread and Butter Thing’s Empowering Conversations project.

Delivered in partnership with the Proper Job Theatre Company the sessions, which are held at the charity’s hubs and provide individualised support for women in the community in a light touch environment to support them into positive destinations through developing pathways for education, training, volunteering and work, and further increasing their incomes. Since April 2023 13 sessions have been held in Manchester, engaging with 103 women. By focusing on women, the number of indirect beneficiaries will increase as the support also provides benefit to their families and wider community.
