CELEBRITY CHEFS RAISED ENOUGH MONEY TO ENABLE FOODCYCLE TO OPEN 5 FURTHER CENTRES ACROSS UK!
Celebrity chefs Francesco Mazzei, Tom Aikens, Gary Foulkes, Chantelle Nicholson, Ben Tish & Danilo Cortellini served up an incredible feast at Fishmonger’s Hall on 23rd May 2019. All seats were sold! It was an incredible evening celebrating how FoodCycle has for the past 10 years transformed surplus fruit & vegetables into delectable 3 course meals, feeding millions at risk of food poverty or social isolation across the UK!
The Gala Dinner celebrated FoodCycle’s 10th Anniversary & the fact that over one million meals have been served up at 40 centres across the UK. You could feel the heat in the kitchen as the chefs busily competed with each other to prepare the most impressive dish. There was a feeling of camaraderie amongst the group, a palpable positive vibe, & discussion about the benefits of transforming food that would otherwise have gone to waste.
Francesco Mazzei: “It was an amazing evening, we all felt great to be gathered together supporting FoodCycle. I am so proud to have been a part of this historic night, transforming food into a banquet fit for kings. It means the world to know that funds raised from the night will allow FoodCycle to open 5 new projects across the country”.
FoodCycle’s charity partner JustEat sponsored the event. All proceeds from the evening went directly to FoodCycle.
Mary McGrath, Chief Executive of FoodCycle:
“There was such excitement on the night. Guests really enjoyed savouring each of the dishes prepared by these Michelin star chefs. We felt so privileged to have some of the country’s most celebrated chefs with us. What an occasion!”
