City Harvest: Throw it in the Pan

MM is pleased to be partnering with City Harvest London to run zero-waste cooking classes, with 80% of proceeds from tickets helping City Harvest on their mission to save food from waste and provide meals to the hungry.

City Harvest, established 2014, is London’s first ‘last-mile’ food redistribution charity. Rescuing surplus food and delivering to those who need it the most, their chilled vans form rapid response units connecting waste and want, 7 days a week, throughout the capital.

Free of charge, City Harvest vans collect and deliver 80,000 meals a week from supermarkets, wholesale markets, manufacturers and the hospitality industry. Their trademark fleet of temperature-controlled vans delivers to over 300 London community programmes, including homeless shelters, mental health community projects, family centres, children’s programmes, and domestic abuse refuges.

The “Throw it… in the pan!” classes teach the secrets of great food, covering basic cooking techniques and focusing on a different technique each month. Participants learn how to transform surplus food into an impressive gourmet feast. MM’s Chef Gabriele shares top tips on how to easily eat in season and create zero-waste meals. At the end of the class, the group can taste the delicious food they’ve cooked up and are encouraged to bring their own food container to take away anything they don’t manage to eat.

City Harvest provides all the ingredients for the class so participants can rest assured that the food they are using to create delicious recipes has been saved from waste.
