MetMUnch is a creative student enterprise that will share their inspirational story from inception in 2011 to winning EAUC national and international Green Gown Awards in 2014. In the first year, MetMUnch developed its reputation with a series of ‘flash’ interventions and pop-up cafes, in the second year, activities moved into the local community, and in the third year addressed skills and knowledge acquisition through the delivery of workshops to external and internal partners.

MetMUnch’s story should demonstrate how nurturing entrepreneurship and transforming engagement skills for students and staff can enhance student experience, create global citizens and life-wide and life-long education for individuals through foodie fun!
