Story

Yusef, Key4Life participant

“Jack’s Food Cell is an amazing venture that has given me and others vital skills at a time (post release) when opportunities to develop and learn are few and far between.

I’m incredibly grateful to have been involved in this project. In truth I started my professional career here. Four years later and I’m on my way to reaching the heights of my ambition within the corporate workplace. I’m so thankful to the Food Cell and I’ll always reference the venture when asked where it all started for me.

Spurred by the vision of K4L and the appreciation and burning gratitude for Jack Winter and his family, the Food Cell is a venture that will hopefully live on and benefit many more young men for years to come.”

Jack and the van's story so far...

In January 2018, at the age of 19, Jack Winter died from cancer. His courage, humour, and constant positivity were an inspiration to everyone. It is in that spirit that Jack's Leg Up Legacy was set up and Jack's Food Cell (a burger van), was launched by Tore Andre Flo, former Chelsea striker, at HMP Brixton in September 2019.

In the six years since Jack’s death, you, his family and friends, have given your time, energy and money to support the van for which we are unbelievably grateful.

The funds raised to date have enabled us to buy and convert an ex-prison van and get it on the road. Over 100 young men have gained work experience on the van and over 40 young men have attained their level 2 NVQ in food and hygiene. Jack’s van has attended over 90 events.

New funds will support the next cohort of disadvantaged young men starting the Key4Life 7 step programme in June. Your donation will enable us to support 10 young men to be trained to level 2 in NVQ Food and Hygiene. It will also cover the costs of giving them work experience on the van to prepare them for future employment.

Jack’s fund is administered by the award-winning charity Key4Life which was set up by Eva Hamilton MBE to support young men who are either in prison, or who are at risk of going to prison.

If you would prefer to donate by cheque, please make it payable to Key4Life and make sure that it is referenced 'Jack' on the back of the cheque and send to:
