Bosses in the kitchen as Bristol’s business leaders cook up a storm for charity

Date: January 12, 2024

The Anti Banquet aims to raise £100,000 for the Bristol Local Food Fund, a volunteer-led organisation that supports community food projects across the city.

The event, which will take place on February 29 and, will see hundreds of guests from local charities, public sector teams and businesses enjoy a night of entertainment, food and fun, while their bosses serve them as part of the kitchen or front of house staff.

Gareth Sweet, CEO of Sweet Projects, has purchased nine tables to support the ambitious aim of raising £100,000 for Bristol Local Food Fund.

He said: “The concept of the Anti Banquet is simply fantastic – it’s an opportunity to flip the traditional ‘fundraising dinner’ on its head, celebrate our teams who would not usually go to events like this, and with the added benefit of seeing their directors helping out in the kitchen, alongside some of Bristol’s most exciting professional chefs.”

“We’re so pleased to be able to support the event and donate tables to enable more people to attend, all to raise money for the brilliant Bristol Local Food Fund, who have been instrumental in supporting our city’s families and people in need, making such a difference to thousands of lives across the communities we live and work in.”
