Unity Grill

Unity Grill is an exciting opportunity to establish a Social Restaurant in the heart of Ayrshire to challenge food poverty and hunger.

We did it!

On 8th Jan 2017 we successfully raised £6,210 of £5,000 target with 174 supporters in 42 days

New stretch target

The extra money raised will be used to purchase furniture for the restaurant i.e. tables and chairs. 

We aim to set up Unity Grill as a Social Restaurant. Unity Grill will provide a welcome table, delicious food and community spirited sharing. 100% of the profits will be used to challenge food poverty. 

Food poverty is a growing concern across the UK and Ayrshire is not immune to that. The numbers using the local foodbank are growing year on year. At Unity Grill we want to offer a beautiful, welcome space where the local community can come and enjoy a meal, or just a coffee together. Those profits will be used to help pay for a meal for those who cannot afford it. We are not offering something for nothing. Those in need can volunteer an hour of their time in return for a voucher, helping to restore some of the dignity food poverty takes away. 

We believe that sharing food together can help break down some of the barriers and social isolation that food poverty creates. No one should be isolated from their community. Unity Grill will aim to help allieviate hunger in a meaningful, communitarain way by allowing those who cannot afford to pay the chance to sit at our table with those who can. 

Unity Grill will offer valuable volunteering opportunities to those who have time to give and those with skills to gain. There will be genuine opportunties to our volunteers to learn new skills and gain qualifications that could lead to employment. 

Ayrshire is home to some wonderful food producers, Unity Grill will aim to source all food and services as local as possible to boost our economy. 

We are very excited to bring our community together through the sharing of delicious food and reduce social isolation. 

Everyone will be welcome at our table regardless of their ability to pay.
