Valentines for Everyone – Pop up Restaurant at FareShare’s depot in Bermondsey

Feast with us at FareShare and help us raise money for the charityFeast with us at FareShare and help us raise money for the charity

This Valentine weekend, 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 can expect a magnificent 3-course menu of delicious but unwanted foods that might otherwise end up in landfill. From heart to honey, pheasant to parsnip and even kaffir lime leaves, Valentines for Everyone will transform surplus food into a bountiful seasonal banquet. Surplus food is delicious, healthy produce that hasn’t made it into the shops because too much was ordered, it’s in the wrong packaging or it’s just a bit wonky. Be prepared for a culinary exploration, we will cater for vegetarian and red-blooded carnivores alike.

Everyone will sit together for the feast, so come alone, with friends or with your loved one and sit with other diners to celebrate and feast. The banquet will be held in FareShare’s east London warehouse, so diners will sit amongst towering stacks of FareShare’s surplus food, industrial fridges and lavish themed décor, created by Secret Garden Party designer Alex Geldenhuis.

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 FebruarySaturday 11thSunday 12th (late lunch) and for dinner on Valentine’s Day itself and include 3 courses, a drink and canapés.

For dinner service, the venue will be open from 7pm and service will commence promptly at 7.30 pm.
Late lunch on Sunday 12th the venue will be open from 3pm for service at 3.30pm.
