Despite being a promising amateur boxer, drug addiction and prison shaped Rene’s 20s and 30s. He joined our RAW Talent programme in 2015, thanks to our connection with Caring Hands, a church-run charity in Chatham that offers food and support to vulnerable people. He now works as a porter in our Finishing Team.
There’s more to business than making money. We see our purpose at COOK as ‘nourishing relationships’ and that covers a lot: between food and where it comes from, between people and their work, between business and society, and between people and their community. That’s why we offer a 30% discount for anyone organising an event that benefits their local community.
