Celebrating Feeding The 5000 coming to Bristol, food charity FareShare are collaborating with Forgotten Feast and their eco-chef Tom Hunt on Tuesday 8th & 15th May to produce a unique feast made from surplus at Poco in Stokes Croft.
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. Forgotten Feast will transform this surplus into a delectable seasonal banquet at Poco to raise money for the food charity FareShare South West.
Surplus food will be the subject on everyone’s minds as Feeding 5K makes its regional debut in Bristol on College Green 12th May 1pm-5pm. Forgotten Feast at Poco will support the Feeding 5K message by serving up their banquets on the Tuesday before and after the main event.
Be prepared for a culinary exploration – they 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. Dinner will be served at Poco. Tickets are £39.50 online by clicking here, or you can go down to Poco to book your place.
The feast is a fundraiser for FareShare SW, a charity which rescues surplus food from the industry all year round and redistributes it to organizations working with people in need all over the country. Every ticket sold will enable FareShare SW to feed 188 meals to vulnerable people.
Jacqui from FareShare SW says “This is a great cause to support. FareShare reduces food waste and helps vulnerable people. So put your money where your mouth is and vote with your forks!”
Tom Hunt will be challenged with devising a gourmet menu from the ever-changing and varied supply of surplus food, creating a delicious meal from that which would have been discarded.
He says “This will be a spontaneous feast of wondrous ingredients. We will change the fate of these ingredients from unnecessary spoil to a banquet fit for a king. We at Forgotten Feast actively tackle food waste, educating people through the simple and enjoyable act of eating. We are culinary activists.”
