Reimagining Rent innovators: Fat Macy’s

Fat Macy's

Fat Macy’s are a social enterprise supporting people out of homelessness through an innovative catering programme.

The benefits system disincentivises people in temporary accommodation from finding full-time employment, trapping people in hostels and out of work. Fat Macy’s catering and supper club enterprise offers a way out; upon completion of their catering programme, trainees are granted enough to cover for a housing deposit and clothes for work.

Meg Doherty, founder, presented her pitch at our Demo Day this year. They are looking to develop their innovative “micro-hostel” concept, which will offer homeless people a place to live while taking part in the training programme.

Right now, you can support Fat Macy’s trainees take one step closer to renting their own home, by ordering their three-course dining experience straight to your home, or signing up for a fortnightly biscuit subscription.
