Foodcycle are back (see previous events here) with a banquet made from surplus ingredients, at a very impressive venue, The Museum of The Order of St John in Clerkenwell on the Thursday 28th March, the day before Good Friday. Feaster - geddit?
"FoodCycle and Valentine Warner team up with Recycle for London and Love Food Hate Waste to provide a banquet made from surplus ingredients on Thursday 28th March at the historic Museum of the Order of St John.
FoodCycle, the charity devoted to tackling food waste and food poverty, is collaborating with Love Food Hate Waste and Recycle for London to fight food waste this Easter.
Together they are creating a pop-up restaurant, hosted by celebrity chef Valentine Warner, to start the Easter weekend in style at the Museum of the Order of St John in London.
‘Feaster’, on Thursday March 28th, will offer diners a five-course feast made out of ingredients that would otherwise have been wasted, with a menu devised by Valentine Warner and FoodCycle. Meanwhile in the run-up to the event, throughout Lent, a new tip to cut food waste at home will be released each day on the @FoodCycle and @Recycle_London twitter feeds.
The proceeds from ticket sales – available at £26 – will help the charity’s innovative projects, which collect surplus ingredients from supermarkets and cook them into nutritious meals for people at risk from food poverty and social isolation.
Kelvin Cheung, CEO and founder of FoodCycle says:
“So much food is wasted all year round, and Easter presents yet another occasion where we all waste too much. Despite this we have over 4 million people affected by food poverty in the UK. Like us, Love Food Hate Waste is working hard to reduce the nation’s food waste and we’re proud to create this unique event with them and Valentine Warner, raising vital funds for us to create more meals for those in need.”"
