About Time: You Attended Social Pantry’s Charity Supper ClubBy Angelica Malin
Social Pantry’s annual fundraising dinner – Social Supper – is back and bigger than ever. For one night only (19th April), Social Pantry founder Alex Head will host chefs from Breddos Tacos (Nud Dudhia) Salon (Nick Balfe), Smokestak (David Carter), Som Saa (John Chantarasak) and Social Pantry’s very own Richard Gynn and Rosie Smith for the ultimate social fundraising feast at JJ Media’s, Wimborne House in Shoreditch.
Social Supper: The Details
In support of their ground-breaking work on tackling the root causes of reoffending, Social Pantry have once again teamed up with Key4Life to handpick a group of six young ex-offenders to devise a delicious menu celebrating the best of London’s diverse food scene.
Selected for their hardworking approach to rehabilitation, each individual young man has been paired with a restaurant to help prepare, cook and serve a dish to guests on the night. Focusing on a course each, the ex-offender will take part in a three-day restaurant kitchen work taster during the week prior to the event. All profits from ticket sales will be donated to Key4Life.
The aim of the Social Supper is to support young offenders’ rehabilitation and raise awareness of one of the most intractable social issues facing Britain today: the high rate of re-offending among young males ages 18-25.
Alongside live cooking from the chef teams, selected Key4Life individuals will be directly involved in the project through paid front-of-house and kitchen porter roles. Tickets include a 5-course dinner with Tanqueray No. TEN and Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic Water, served with a refreshing slice of grapefruit to compliment the citrus botanicals of the gin.
When: Thursday 19th April from 6.30pm – 10.30pm
Where: 151-155 New N Rd, Hoxton, London N1 6TA
