I’m Susan and I support Empower to Cook as a non-executive director. With a passion for food justice I’m dedicated to making a difference in my community through food bank initiatives and promoting physical and mental wellbeing. In my time off I can be found wading through the Misbourne, in Tudor costume or singing… but not all at the same time.
“Hi! I’m Dan and I support Empower To Cook as a non-executive director. I worked as a chef for a number of years locally, and I’m now the managing director of a foodservice equipment business, MCFT. I’m a football & dog enthusiast, and I’m passionate about ensuring people value food and the health & wellbeing importance associated with it."
