Donate to the Lu Ban Foundation

The Lu Ban Foundation is focused upon:

  • The advancement of education of the public in the subject of Chinese culinary arts. We do this through delivering educational sessions to learners at our Lu Ban Restaurant in Liverpool, through the delivery of authentically inspired Chinese dishes to restaurant customers, and awareness and building skills through a new UK student Chinese cooking competition called Wokstars.
  • The promotion of education by awarding scholarships, maintenance allowances or grants tenable at any university, college or institution of higher or further education in the subject of Chinese culinary arts.
  • Actively promoting and supporting the hospitality sector to help achieve the global target of Net Zero Carbon emissions.

Just like our partners in Tianjin, China, we also believe in the strength and bonds within our community, so we work hard to create opportunities to help independent businesses or groups.
