To bring farm to stall brunch to the masses while transforming young lives through holistic support and hospitality training.

by Loren Bream in Croydon, England, United Kingdom

Allow us to introduce ourselves!

Serving fresh brunch and perspective, Yoke Easy creates fulfilment through food, friendship, and freedom. Together, with our team of eager learners, we make and serve sustainable and wholesome brunch to conscious customers at markets, festivals and private events across the nation.

How we are going to change the world

We believe that alongside the importance of providing appetising brunch to the masses at our street food stall, it is paramount to our mission that we are affecting change in the lives of young people who otherwise may not have had the opportunity to begin a career they love. The circumstances that can fracture someones access into the workforce could include involvement in gang and youth violence, exclusion from school without being reintegrated into effective education or moved around in the foster care system. It could be many circumstances that mean a teenager turns 18 and has few contacts, lack of mentorship and support or no qualifications to enter further education, training or work. The Yoke Easy programme aims to serve and support ambitious young people who are striving to overcome their life challenges.

16-24 year olds were not in 
education, employment or training (NEET) in the UK from April-June 2019. An increase of 14,000 people from the same months in 2018.

What will we do with the funding? 

When we reach our funding goal of £25,000, we will buy our equipment and build out our beautiful brunch stall, ready to pop up at events and street food markets by September 2020. This money will also enable us to launch the Yoke Easy programme. By summer 2021, we will have established and invested into the programme, able to hire a group of young people to embark on this journey with us, enrolled to the joy filled and life changing process. The programme will offer training and qualifications in:

  • food preparation
  • kitchen hygiene
  • small business strategy
  • barista training 
  • customer service
  • CV design
  • interview skills
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Other useful career and life tools

We'll guide them through this holistic programme to enhance their quality of life and kick start their successful futures! The aim is to see young lives changed, peoples’ bellies full of good food, and to show the world that investing in Yoke Easy will enrich the lives of many through training, development and adventure.
