Why Join the Table?
Start the Easter weekend in style and make your platter matter! FoodCycle, Valentine Warner, and Love Food Hate Waste are joining forces on Thursday March 28th to create a delicious banquet for you to enjoy. From 7pm onwards we’re going to be turning surplus ingredients that would otherwise be thrown away into a stunning menu at the unique Museum of the Order of St John, right in the heart of London. In this grand hall you’ll get to sit down to wonderful dishes including a starter created by the fantastic Valentine Warner and a main course and dessert created by the FoodCycle catering team, with the full menu to be announced soon!
Tickets are on sale now for just £26, which includes an aperitif and our five-course vegetarian banquet. All proceeds from this event will go to FoodCycle, to help create more meals for people at risk from food poverty and social isolation. In the run-up to the event Love Food Hate Waste will be releasing lots of super anti-waste tips, designed to help you reduce food waste and save yourself money!
There will be a cash bar on the night selling wines to complement your meal. If you’ve any questions about the event, please contact FoodCycle on 020 7377 8771 or email [email protected] We're also looking for volunteers to help out - as waiting staff on the night, and in the kitchen on the 27th and 28th. If you'd be able to help please contact Kim on [email protected]
Our starter will be devised by Valentine Warner and our other dishes devised by the team behind FoodCycle’s Pie in the Sky Café in Bromley-by-Bow, which supports volunteers to develop the skills and confidence needed to gain employment. They also teach them how to cook – passing on that vital knowledge so they can create tasty meals for their family and friends. If you’d like to know more about the café (we also cater!) please email [email protected]

FoodCycle combines volunteers, surplus food and spare kitchen spaces to create nutritious meals for people at risk from food poverty and social isolation in the UK. By coming to our events, you'll help us do this whilst enjoying delicious food at the same time.
Our events are all about enjoying yourself while supporting FoodCycle.
We create delicious meals using surplus ingredients that would otherwise be thrown away, making use of a wasted resource to create something special. Usually that's for our service users - older people, homeless people, low-income families and people with mental health problems - but to fundraise for this we create unique evenings for you to attend, to see first-hand how delicious food made out of surplus ingredients can be, and to experience that warm and welcoming FoodCycle atmosphere. Come along and see for yourself!
