FareShare Sussex is an independent charity operating from Brighton tackling two increasingly important issues: hunger and food waste. They redistribute surplus food that would otherwise go to waste to over 120 local charities and community groups supporting vulnerable people. Beneficiaries range from homeless hostels and school breakfast projects to rehab centres, women’s refuges and elderly lunch clubs. The charity is the largest of its kind in the region and relies on the support of the community to keep up its work preventing over 10 tonnes of food from going to waste every week.
Kanthi Kiran Thamma is an award-winning Brighton-based chef formerly of Curry Leaf Café fame, and now the brains behind The Spice Circuit. The Spice Circuit is a project that stems from Kanthi's passion for food and travel and represents his desire to share the uniquely rich culinary heritage and fabulous hospitality of his native Hyderabad, Southern India. A multifaceted venture, The Spice Circuit organises bespoke food tours of Southern India – but if you don't want to travel that far afield, why not check out some of Kanthi's pop-ups, unique events and chef collaborations? At Kanthi's events, you'll learn about of one of the most crucial events in this cultural history of food – the spice trade that linked Europe with Southern India, leading to the colonisation of areas including Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka.
Enjoy an evening with renowned Brighton chef Kanthi, cooking and eating the delicious delights of Southern Indian cuisine, whilst supporting local charity FareShare Sussex – your support can make a real difference!
