Join us on the 7th April for Fat Macy's supper club.

Located a stone's throw from King's Cross, Fat Macy's supper clubs showcase the culinary efforts of a group of young homeless residents of the YMCA and provides a pathway for independent living by inviting them to organise, create and curate culinary pop-up events across London. 

Fat Macy’s overcomes the cycle of homelessness by using the project’s profits to create a specified housing deposit scheme. With every pop-up event, each chef can make an independent and progressive step in saving securely for their future. 

Alongside increasing personal savings, Fat Macy’s resident chefs are trained in vital skills for independent living: understanding food hygiene; cooking; financial planning; running and curating events; and practical work experience. 

After participating with Fat Macy’s for seven events, our chefs will be able to afford a deposit for a flat and a clear pathway into independent living.

The night will include a three course meal curated, designed and cooked by our guest chefs alongside a drink on arrival. Come along to hear their stories, share their recpices and support them with their plans for the future.

Amazing night with Jamaican theme (and a good cause to boot)

Rating: 9

emily attended in April 2016, reviewed on 8 April 2016

We were greeted with a fabulous rum cocktail in a very beautiful Georgian high ceiling room with balcony around the top.
After a callaloo soup with creme fraiche we then got a typical Jamaican Jerk Chicken rice and peas, served with mango and avocado salsa. A huge plate with plenty of sides and very tasty too.
The desert was ok - Jamaican ginger cake - I would have liked more ginger but it went well with the theme of the night.
These dishes were cooked by homeless people learning to cook, Before each course one of the cooking team would come and introduce the dish to the whole group (we were around 40 people). Most people would find that intimidating but they were cool and it was uplifting to see.
Wine and beer were very reasonably priced ask although not BYOB it was not that much more than going to the offie yourself.
Meg is the girl who is behind this initiative and with Fred too they are doing a fantastic job. Would recommend to all.
