14th is just about the busiest night for restaurants in London with venues selling out weeks in advance, even with inflated prices and reduced menus. What should be a romantic gesture can be diminished by restaurants taking advantage of Londoners who want to treat their loved one.

So what better way to impress your partner or date than to take them to an ethical and socially conscious event that prevents food being wasted and helps to raise funds for charity too. Valentines For Everyone is an event being hosted on 10th, 11th, 12th and 14th February by Fareshare – a charity that helps hungry and vulnerable people and eco-chef Tom Hunt who will be producing a three course feast from food that would otherwise end up in a landfill.

£40 per person gets you an amazing menu featuring delicacies like pheasant, honey and kaffir lime leaves and other seasonal treats. Grant giving charity Street Smartare also generously matching the number of meals raised from ticket sales.

The banquet will be held at Fareshare’s Bermondsey headquarters on large tables, so you will be sharing with others and the decor is to be created by Secret Garden Party designer Alex Geldenhuys. With great food and the chance to show your ethical credentials, this is guaranteed to impress!
