A cafe that employs people with disabilities has won a silver prize in the Bradford Good Food Awards.

The awards scheme, which recognises outlets offering healthy takeaways, forms part of an initiative by Bradford Council and Trading Standards to improve health and wellbeing.

FoodWorks, a social enterprise providing training and employment for adults with learning disabilities, impressed judges with its well-priced healthy choices.

FoodWorks, part of Yorkshire Housing, has a cafe at South Asian arts centre Kala Sangam in Forster Square, and an outside catering business.

FoodWorks catering services manager Kerrie-Lee Barr said: “We recognise that we have a duty to offer our customers high-quality, healthy food. We also have a further responsibility to our trainees to help them understand how to be healthy – the training we offer isn’t just about learning how to work in a kitchen, it’s about helping them develop life skills.”

The awards were presented by West Yorkshire Trading Standards committee chairman Councillor Val Slater.
