In aid of Refugee Week, one of the world’s largest vegan food channels ‘So Vegan’ will join forces with Peckham’s latest food hotspot ‘WILDFLOWER’ and its sister music venue ‘Ghost Notes’ to host a one-off vegan supper club on Thursday 21 June.
All profits from the evening will support UK-based charity ‘Help Refugees’, who take part in crucial work around the world, helping people who have been displaced due to conflict, violence or persecution.
The menu for the evening’s ‘banquet’ will be inspired by Middle-Eastern cuisine, with familiar dishes such as hot pepper ‘muhammara’ and modern vegan classics such as spice-roasted cauliflower with tahini. So Vegan’s Roxy and Ben, both South London locals, will be working with WILDFLOWER head chef Joseph Ryan on the menu.
“It’s so, so important that we show solidarity for those in need and support a charity doing such amazing work”, said Roxy, Co-Founder of So Vegan. “Food can unite people and we’re looking forward to making new friends and sharing ideas at what we believe is one of London’s finest new venues”.
Following the dinner, WILDFLOWER’s sister venue, Ghost Notes, will host a line-up of incredible local musicians curated by Spaces In Between, and will also feature special guests including Farhood, an Iranian-born MC.
“As a company, we at Parched London have always been really proud of the support we've been able to give to our local community. This project will help us to offer desperately needed assistance to people from much further afield, whilst still working from within the neighbourhood we're lucky enough to live in. We're incredibly excited to be involved and are thankful to So Vegan and Help Refugees for bringing us in, hopefully we can raise a lot of money and make a real difference to the lives of those who need it most”.
Since launching in August 2015, Help Refugees has grown from a social media campaign to a charity that has helped over 722,500 people and supports over 80 projects across Europe and the Middle East. Profits raised from the supper club will help support vital Help Refugees projects, which provide emergency aid such as food, water and medical care to longer term solutions such as housing, education and psychosocial support.
“We are currently seeing thousands of people arriving in Greece, fleeing recent atrocities in the Middle East. Our teams are trying to provide for their basic needs from blankets to nappies, to dry clothes and food packs”, said Philli Boyle, Director and Head of Events at Help Refugees. “Funds raised by this event will help us continue to give this vital support”.
