We’re proud to announce the launch of our second KERB impact report.

WHERE IT ALL STARTED:

Kicking off as a pop-up market on a King’s Cross building site in 2012, KERB’s mission was to disrupt the bland, boring lunch lives of Londoners. Since then, we’ve developed a  community of ambitious, flavour-forward entrepreneurs, running colourful and creative pop-up markets and events across the city. Fast forward 12 years, and KERB is now a collective of 158 (and growing) members of the country’s newest and most exciting street food businesses.

DELIVERING IMPACT:

At KERB, we believe in delivering positive social impact through various initiatives across London and beyond. Through our weekly lunch markets and social enterprise, KERB+, we work with a network of brilliant impact partners to develop pathways into work and business. We engage, coach, incubate, and accelerate small independent businesses via our coaching programmes To date, we are proud to have nurtured over 500 of these into thriving successful businesses. We also continue to deliver impact through our Food Hall, Seven Dials Market in Covent Garden, and through our nationwide public and private events.

365 DAYS OF IMPACT:

      • At KERB, we’re committed to making a difference and in just one year we’ve exceeded all of our impact expectations:
