The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has been tough on us all, especially the hospitality industry who have had to shut their doors to customers. As a result, many people are left without jobs. To tackle this obstacle, starting Wednesday 3 February, Manchester street food and drink venue Grub are launching School of Grub – a mentoring programme featuring free online workshops to help those in financial difficulty kick-start their careers.

Taking place across six weeks and featuring a number of live and interactive workshops, participants can expect to get lots of advice on branding, menu design, promotion, social media and how to get gigs and navigate the various legal requirements. There will also be mentoring available through online discussion groups, and the chance to ask industry experts any burning questions you may have. After the virtual workshops are complete, GRUB will support new and upcoming pop-up food business who are ready to start trading in our beloved city by housing them at their regular food fairs.

Businesses will also get the opportunity to pitch ideas – and Grub hopes to offer equipment loans and prep spaces to successful participants. So whether you’re just starting out or have experience and want to lend a helping hand, School of GRUB is open to everyone. Fancy taking part?
