Fancy something different to an overpriced heart shaped pizza in a restaurant packed to the rafters with shiny balloons this year? Then look no further, because this Valentine's weekend, our friends at food charity FareShare are collaborating with Forgotten Feast and their eco-chef Tom Hunt to produce a unique 3 course banqueting experience – Valentines for Everyone.
For £40 you'll get a fantastic 3 course feast of delicious but unwanted food that might otherwise end up in landfill. Not because there's something wrong with it, but because too much was ordered, it was in the wrong packaging or it was just a bit wonky.
Vegetarians and meat eaters will both be catered for and everyone will sit together for the feast, so even if you don't have a date you won't have to dine alone. The banquet will be held in FareShare’s east London warehouse, and every ticket sold will enable FareShare to provide an additional 80 meals for the hungry and vulnerable people they support, thanks to grant-giving charity StreetSmart who are generously matching the number of meals raised though ticket sales. FareShare rescues surplus food year round and delivers it to local charities all over the country.
Tickets are available for dinner Friday 10th February, Saturday 11th, Sunday 12th (late lunch) and for dinner on Valentine’s Day itself and include 3 courses, a drink and canapés. Get them here.
