Members of the public applied for a table through www.deliciousbyds5.com, and over 9000 applications were made during the weeks leading up to the event for just 500 covers available at the restaurant over the 4 day opening. We were there to sample the food, and were blown away by the difference and variety in textures and other senses.
The five course meal cost a minimum donation of just £5 per head with the proceeds going to the food poverty charity. FareShare redistributes surplus goods from the food and beverage industries to help tackle food poverty in the UK and feeds 35,000 people each day.
You can still donate to FareShare via the projects Just Giving page – www.justgiving.com/citroends5.
