hosted by Fat Macy's
Tucked away off Brick Lane, Fat Macy's supper clubs return to the Canvas Cafe for a May residency. Showcasing the culinary efforts of a group of young homeless residents of the YMCA, Fat Macy's supper clubs provide 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.
Tonight's special supper club will be in collaboration with the wonderful Loretta's Kitchen. Together with our Fat Macy's chefs, Loretta has designed a wonderful menu to delight new audiences.
The night will include a three course meal curated, designed and cooked by Loretta and our guest chefs alongside a drink on arrival. Come along to hear their stories, share their recipes and support them with their plans for the future.
