'Our mission is to improve children's lives through developing healthy relationships with food'
At Ella’s Kitchen, we want to help create healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime. For all of our buddies working in the Barns, the mission is something we all think about in every decision we make. We work really hard to create a workplace that inspires everyone with our mission. From healthy breakfasts to weekly lunches, farm trips with local schools or cooking tutorials in our development kitchen, we’re always thinking of fun new ways that our buddies can develop their own healthy relationships with food.
Buddy is our values caretaker. He lives and breathes our 5 values, which were the foundations on which Ella’s Kitchen was built. Buddy helps make sure that Ella’s is a brilliant place to work and that our values are more than just ‘great sounding ideas’.
Buddy helps us make the right decisions, supports us to have great relationships with our colleagues or partners, enables us to be creative and innovative, and encourages us to be the best we can be. We have lots of different ways that we recognise and reward our buddies everyday in how they live and breathe the values, and the values are a key part of the recruitment process when we’re looking for newbies to join us in the Barns.
