About SMASH

 

SMASH - Save Money and Stay Healthy - is an exciting new app that gives 13 to 24 year olds money off the healthier food options at the places they like to eat, including fast food chains, restaurants, supermarkets, sandwich bars and coffee shops. In this post-COVID world, we want young adults to have easier, cheaper access to healthier options across all parts of the food environment.

The brainchild of ex-KFC board member Chris Holmes, ably assisted finance whizz Mark Currie, and nutritionist Jenny Rosborough, and with Ella's kitchen founder Paul Lindley as Chair, SMASH has attracted financial backing from Guy's & St Thomas' charity and support from Bite Back 2030, along with a number of private investors.

And now we need you …

So if you’re a positive and creative thinker, up for disrupting the status quo in healthy eating to shine a light on the good stuff that’s out there, and fancy being critical part of a tech start-up … then what are you waiting for? Say hi!
