Hosting Ideas

Your Feast can be what you want it to be, go large or go small. Engage your colleagues and your regulars and see what is achievable for you. Here is some inspiration:

  • Host a ticketed event at your venue where the guests pay a set price which covers both your costs and a donation to Feast for Freedom. If required, you can manage this through a ticketing website like Eventbrite, Humanitix or Try Booking and transfer the proceeds to your Feast fundraising page. On the day you can also have QR codes for your fundraising page on display so guests and their plus ones can see how your fundraising is tracking.
  • Offer an exclusive Feast for Freedom item for the day and donate the proceeds
  • Dedicating a portion of sales from one sitting, or one day
