MetMUnch is a global award-winning, student-led social enterprise based at Manchester Metropolitan University. At its heart, it has a passion for sustainable and nutritious food.
MetMUnch provides the skills and training to promote health and wellbeing. Its students and graduates take this and apply it in sessions at university and community events, or in one-off creative projects. These can range from on-the-spot nutritional advice and running pop-up stalls, to cooking nutritious meals and leading fun, interactive activities.
As an extra-curricular organic enterprise, the students that take part get to enrich their university experience with entrepreneurial and creativity skills, all with sustainability at the core. MetMUnch creates an environment that encourages enterprising entrepreneurial mindsets and behaviours, both in staff and students, and ensures ideas and innovation are given the support they need to flourish.
