Liberated Feast: Vegan Banquet

It’s the fourth outing for this innovative local dining experience, which combines delicious food and lively entertainment with raising money for charity and awareness of global food waste.

The event begins with a wine reception and a talk from the Cambridge Humanitarian Centre, who will launch their 2014 Cambridge International Development Report, before a sit-down meal created using surplus produce that would otherwise go to waste from local producers, retailers, farms, markets, vegetable box schemes, allotment holders and foraging.

There will also be a marketplace, where guests can meet Humanitarian Centre members and community groups working for fairer, more sustainable food production and consumption.

The event costs £10 per ticket, with all proceeds going towards a project for the Milimani School on Kenya’s Rusinga Island which is raising money to build, staff and support a kitchen to provide the children’s entire daily nutrition and create a school permaculture food growing space. So far The Liberated Feast has raised £1000 towards the project, which has an estimated total cost of £5000, and are already supporting the school’s breakfast feeding programme. They are also developing an educational programme, working with schools and communities to explore the global food system and create their own Liberated Feasts.

Starts at 5.30pm; tickets can be purchased via Eventbrite. Search The Liberated Feast on Facebook or visit the CSF website.
