Aysha Mazhar, Manchester Met Graduate

“MetMunch is a vibrant, inclusive entity which provides a plethora of experience that you wouldn’t get anywhere else!

MetMUnch is a fantastic way of getting involved at Manchester Met. I would strongly suggest that any student studying any course should join the network because at the end of the day, food has an impact on all of us, not just those who are studying Human Nutrition as part of their degree. The skills that you gain from participating in such events are invaluable and they are easily transferrable. Some of the skills gained from working with MetMUnch including teamwork, communication, and problem solving (just to name a few) are the very qualities which are desired by employers in any field of work. The other students who I have worked with on numerous events or projects under MetMUnch are so supportive and friendly. And Haleh Moravej has been a great and inspiring mentor on many occasions!

It’s great to collaborate with other societies, students and members of the community through MetMUnch because it allows me to understand more about food and other people inside and beyond the university campus, whether it be through making hundreds of smoothies, promoting awareness on sustainability issues such as Carbon Literacy, or understanding the importance of having a positive body image.

MetMUnch as an organisation has achieved a lot already and it’s just going to get bigger and better, and I am proud to be a part of such a dynamic network. And on top of that I am able to cook a lot faster at home, which is a bonus!”
