Stitches In Time launches Food Enterprise Project to raise profile of women in the food industry

Stitches in Time is a community arts, education and enterprise charity based in East London. They are launching an exciting new Food Enterprise Project with Bangladeshi women in Tower Hamlets from September to December 2019. The aim is to practically support innovative & creative ideas to help into employment people living in a borough with the greatest levels of inequality in the country.

The project aims to raise the profile of women in the industry by raising awareness of opportunities, addressing challenges, and celebrating achievements. Over the course of the project the charity aims to run street food market stalls, cater for private events, provide cooking lessons, and finally set up the first women run curry house pop-up on Brick Lane!

Women in The Food Industry co-founder Mecca Ibrahim and founder of Shola KitchenAida Khan are in an introductory video which outlines more of the project's aims and features Bengali women in Tower Hamlets who explain the initiative and the issues around it. 

The project has been designed for and by Bangladeshi women from the local area, who are incredible chefs with a wealth of knowledge about Bangladeshi cuisine.  With so much of the nation’s focus on South Asian cuisine, plus with the London skills shortages surrounding Brexit the project has been created to explore the many business opportunities now available to those wanting to turn their passion into a career.

You can find out more about Stitches in Time on their website and follow them on Twitter @StitchesinTime_ or Instagram @stitchesintime_ here.
