The Wasted Supper Summer Garden Party

From Thursday 15 August

You are cordially invited to THE WASTED SUPPER, a completely sustainable evening celebrating food and innovation. On 15th August, the Dinner Ladies catering company are hosting a summer supper made from food that has been sitting in YOUR cupboard, nearing its sell-by date and in danger of being thrown away!

The Dinner Ladies are inviting you to explore Skip Garden & Kitchen, an idyllic green oasis in the middle of King’s Cross, London.

You can wander the gardens and sip a sustainable cocktail from a converted vegetable patch, or get a personalised printed eco bag in the greenhouse.

The ethos behind the Wasted Supper is simply to enjoy and create something new out of things we already have. 

Here is how it works: 

  • Each guest is encouraged to bring an item of food from their cupboard or fridge (vegetarian only) which is close to expiry or which they are unsure what to do with.
  • Dinner Ladies will then put their creative skills to the test by turning these into a delicious feast.
  • This spread will be enjoyed by everyone together in the garden!

As well as the dinner, there will be other activities to get involved with:

The Dinner Ladies have partnered with Zero-Living, a sustainable lifestyle platform creating a space for eco brands to sell their innovative zero plastic products, helping individuals to reduce waste and live sustainably. 

The Supplycompass clothes swap will be at the garden too. Through them, you will have the chance to exchange unwanted garms for something fresh.

Come for an evening of fun, food, learning and exploration and support the war on waste. 

Any leftover food and clothing will be donated to the Streets Kitchen.
