Lincolnshire pub offering a chance to help “feed the world”

Fundraising event being held for World Central Kitchen on April 26th

World Central Kitchens made headlines when seven of its volunteers were killed by an IDF airstrike in Gaza on April 1st. Now a small pub in Long Sutton, Lincolnshire, is hoping to raise funds to support their future work feeding people in dire situations across the globe with a delicious three course dinner on Friday April 26th.

Kate Ahrens, chef at Palmers Ale House and Kitchen explained “We were so impressed with the ethos of World Central Kitchen. Its founder Jose Andres has built an organisation that not only works to feed people in crisis fast, but also works in tandem with the people who are directly affected to bring them the food they actually want – comfort food that can bring familiarity and comfort to traumatised people as well as just basic nutrition.

At Palmers we have always been committed to food as a social and community experience and we wanted to find a way to make a contribution, however small, to support the work that World Central Kitchen do.”

Sophie Holden, Landlady of Palmers Ale House said: “Things in the hospitality trade are very difficult at  the moment and it is easy to get focussed on our own problems but there are many millions of people all over the world who are in real crisis and so we want to use the small platform that we have to raise some money to support World Central Kitchen and the thousands they work with.”

The pub is using the World Central Kitchen Cookbook – a selection of recipes sourced from all the areas where WCK have worked over the years – to produce a three course dinner. Tickets are on sale for £40 per person and every penny will go to WCK. The pub is donating all the ingredients and the staff time to prepare and serve the meal.

Tickets can be purchased by calling the pub on 01406 365554 or by booking a table here
