Bettys and Taylors Family Fund

The Bettys and Taylors family heritage is very much rooted in food and hospitality. The legacy of their founder and his early experiences in life are central to where Bettys and Taylors are now. Frederick had a very difficult start to his life. Despite this, he was able to gain skills and experience which changed his life and his fortune.  With food key to our business, we want to support food-based projects in Yorkshire.

The fund aims to support groups working to improve the lives of local children and young people through food, and is open to applicants across the whole of Yorkshire.
