2018 National Burger Awards winner, Cut + Grind, and 2018 Gay Times Honour for Education recipient and European Diversity Award’s Charity of the Year, Diversity Role Models ("DRM"), have teamed up to embed inclusion and empathy in the next generation.
Cut + Grind will be donating 10p from every portion of triple cooked Belgian style fries sold at any of their London locations. The funds raised by Cut + Grind will enable DRM to continue their work to create an education system in which every young person will know that they are valued and supported, whoever they are.
Paschalis Loucaides, Founder of Cut + Grind, commented “From day 1 at Cut + Grind we have committed ourselves to working in a kind and human way. We act in a way that is kind to the cattle we use in our beef, the planet and our community and our team. We have a wonderfully diverse, inspirational team. Despite our diversity we share one common belief - that being yourself brings out the best in you. When we heard about the work that DRM were doing it felt like a no brainer that we’d like to be involved. I hope we can do much more and work together on many projects.”
CEO of Diversity Role Models, Adam McCann, commented “The support of organisations like Cut + Grind enables us to deliver more pupil workshops year on year. We are excited to collaborate with Cut+Grind, an organisation committed to celebrating diversity and working towards a more inclusive future for all.”
Cut + Grind Burgers
It’s time to get serious about what goes into your burger and at Cut + Grind, winner of the National Burger Award, it’s about proper chefs making proper patties; grinding dry-aged beef in full view of diners. The result? The freshest, juiciest burgers in town.
Diversity Role Models
Diversity Role Models actively seek to embed inclusion and empathy in the next generation. Their vision is a world where everyone embraces diversity and can thrive. This will help create a world where future generations embrace, accept and support difference.
Their mission is to create an education system in which every young person will know that they are valued and supported, whoever they are.
DRM create safe spaces where young people can explore difference and consider their role in creating a world where we all feel accepted. The student workshops feature positive LGBT+ or ally role models who speak openly about their lived experiences, building young people's empathy so they can understand the (often unintended) impact of their language and actions. In order to ensure sustained change they supplement this by also training school governors, staff, parents and carers.
