Fritto’s story began at Granby Fourstreets Community Market in the summer of 2015, when the organisers invited Luca to sample his Italian street food menu on the local community… and they’ve never looked back.
It turns out that Granby Street was the perfect place to begin the Fritto story, combining Luca’s two passions: food and social change. Milan-born Luca came to Merseyside in 2010 to study a Master degree in Criminology at the University of Liverpool. Five years later, he left his job to follow his passion for cooking and do something more worthwhile. Just months after launching his social enterprise, Luca’s work has been recognised at the 2016 Liverpool Youth Awards for ‘improving wellbeing and resilience of young people’.
Luca’s aim is to make a positive contribution to society using food; to promote wellbeing and support independent living; to provide constructive and enriching support to vulnerable or at-risk young adults through a series of mentoring activities and food workshops.
