Funding Oldham’s ideas, one plate at a time.

Got a brilliant idea for you, your community or for Oldham?

If so our next “Funded with Food” event at Hack Oldham could invest in your idea!

“Funded with Food” is a crowdfunding event with a difference, aimed at local people with local ideas and funded by the community itself it awards at least £250 in cash to one brilliant idea at each event.

There’s no complicated forms, or long-winded process, all you need to do to apply is fill in the simple form on the right, 4 applicant’s will be selected at random and invited to share their idea, you will have 4 minutes to present what you want to do to the audience by whatever means works for you, a speech, a power point presentation, or even an interpretive dance.

Want to invest in local people with local ideas?

Not got an idea but still want to be part of something great? Come along on the night, make a minimum donation of £5 on the door, and you’ll be entertained, fed delicious food by the fantastic people at Real Junk Food Oldham and get to vote for whichever idea you think is best.

Best of all, every penny raised on the door goes to the most popular idea. So if 50 people donate £5 then the winner that night walks away with £250, if they donated £10 the winner gets £500 and so on.
