What you'll do

Together with the chefs you'll prepare the special meal for the day – a banquet with ingredients that would otherwise go to waste. Our guests will be served at around 6pm, and then you'll enjoy the meal with the team an hour later. Helping people in need gives a fulfilling sense of dignity, and opens your eyes to someone else’s reality. Show your support and impact 90 people during a special night.
