Kitchenette Karts

Kitchenette Karts is a social enterprise food truck based at Spitalfields Market that serves a Vietnamese street food menu designed in partnership with our consultant chef Anaïs van Manen (BAO, Snackbar). 

Our food truck training programme supports young adult prison-leavers to launch careers in the food industry or set up their own food business. We achieve this through a tried-and-tested combination of real work experience in our food truck, stages with our partner restaurants and mentorship from our charity partner Switchback. 

Over the course of 12 weeks, trainees learn the essential skills needed to run a food business first-hand, including; prepping & cooking; front of house; operations & logistics; costings & GP and how to write a business plan.
