Venner is a social enterprise that aims to tackle food poverty and improve health and wellbeing in families. We have partnered with Venner to help low-income families in need of support by providing healthy, plant-based recipe boxes, as well as nutritional support and education, to encourage families to take control of their health and well-being. The approach aims to encourage the whole family to take part in preparing meals together, understand what they are eating, provide education on why it matters and also support families with budgeting and meal planning; therefore empowering future generations to take control of their health and well-being. Both organisations share the same child-led values and champion equality in childhood development and believe that every child has the right to reach their full potential in life, with good nutrition being key to this.

“The Venner social enterprise started in 2018 in Finland as the Founders found that underprivileged families felt healthy eating was too expensive for their budgets and therefore they were more vulnerable to the negative impacts of a poor diet. By introducing an alternative diet, as well as the ongoing educational support, we have seen that we can positively impact families cooking routines, and by working with Montessori, we will be able to reach families in need quickly and enable more children to experience the benefits of a nutritional diet to enable them to have the best chance in life. Montessori Group is a long-term champion of equality for children, so having access to their network and expertise will be invaluable to our shared objective.”
