Make your next dinner a chef-inspired speciality. London-based food redistribution charity The Felix Project is launching a #DonateYourDinner initiative, with a host of top chefs set to take part in the fun
Kicking things off with Michelin-starred chef and restauranteur, Jason Atherton on 23rd April, viewers will be able to cook live alongsfeide their favourite chefs on their personal Instagram pages, as well as having a chance to win a virtual one-to-one cookery class.
The #DonateYourDinner initiative is being launched to help raise funds for The Felix Project, who have ramped up their efforts in recent weeks, in order to feed Londoners in need.
With chefs such as Adam Handling, Melissa Hemsley and Jack Stein set to take part, this is one virtual masterclass worth charging your phone for.
Today, more than ever, food banks, social kitchens and other organisations are feeding London´s most vulnerable people. The average cost of a 3-course restaurant meal in London is £50.51, enough to provide food for 277 meals.
The idea is simple; look out for the ingredient’s list on the Chef’s Instagram pages ahead of their live cook-along, and tune in every Thursday at 7.30pm BST to watch and cook along.
Afterwards, devour the freshly made dish and make a donation to The Felix Project. The weekly #DonateYourDinner schedule includes Adam Handling on 30th April, Melissa Hemsley on 7th May and Jack Stein on 14th May.
What’s more, those who participate and ‘donate their dinner’ will also have the chance to win a private, one-to-one virtual cookery class with the chef – ideal for honing your skills at home.
As the coronavirus pandemic continues to unfold in the UK, the need for supplies is greater than ever. The Felix Project have been working hard to ensure that people who are struggling are getting enough nourishing and healthy food to eat, but they urgently need support. Before the outbreak, The Felix Project rescued and delivered 10 tonnes of food a day; now it is delivering three times the usual amount, at 30 tonnes.
The food The Felix Project rescues helps the elderly, homeless, families on low income, NHS staff and those in isolation that are unable to access fresh produce. These dontations are crucial to help support those in need – make sure to tune in and help combat COVID-19.
