The very first Surplus Supper Club warmed the iciest of evenings in Wolverton earlier this month.
MK Community Fridge working in collaboration with MK Christian Foundation launched the very first Surplus Supper Club in an effort to highlight the problem of food waste.
Volunteers welcomed more than 100 diners to enjoy a three course vegetarian feast made from surplus food collected from individuals and businesses across MK.
Guests were invited to share quality food prepared and frozen over many weeks by the young trainees at Think Food and lovingly cooked by award winning Safia Ali of Saf's Kitchen. There was no charge for the meal but diners could leave a donation and help continue MK Community Fridges' efforts to share good food to benefit the people of Milton Keynes.
"Surplus Supper Clubs are another way to share quality food and build stronger bonds in our community, we're absolutely delighted with the response to our first event," said co-ordinator Helen Innes.
The team are planning monthly pop-up events throughout 2018 that work in collaboration with a venue and a food professional using unwanted food collected by the project. MK Community Fridge is currently two fridges and a freezer located in the foyer if The Old Bath House, Wolverton staffed and open Monday-Friday 7-9pm and Thursday 11-1pm.
The project launched in the summer and has already collected and shared over 4 tonnes of food. If you would like to be involved or would like to learn more about MK Community Fridge click here
