What you'll do

To raise funds for The MAZI Project and Team Canteen's continued effort to connect marginalised communities to Bristol's food scene, they're hosting a spectacular four-course winter feast with Bristol's most distinguished chefs.

Yuup is delighted to be supporting such an important project, where 100% of the ticket proceeds will go to MAZI and Team Canteen, helping them in their ongoing efforts to tackle local food inequality. The season for giving is upon us and this is what this experience is about...

The MAZI Project is a grassroots organisation that tackles food poverty for Bristol’s disadvantaged 16-25 year olds. These include care leavers, young asylum seekers and those who were homeless. MAZI believes everyone should have access to fresh, healthy and sustainable food - it shouldn't be a privilege. Their weekly MAZI Meal Box service delivers locally sourced fruit and vegetables chosen by young members of the community, while their cookery workshops work closely with disadvantaged young people in the city.

Team Canteen creates inclusive food projects and spaces which bring people together through food. Their projects include people from all backgrounds, creating spaces where guests can connect with others, share their knowledge, experiences, and culture in an accessible and welcoming environment for all.

Set in the beautiful Windmill Hill City Farm Cafe, this four-course seasonal meal will be the dining experience in the heart of the city you have been waiting for.

The disadvantaged young people The MAZI Project supports will be cooking alongside:

  • Jamie Randall from Michelin plate, Adelina Yard
  • The team from CoExist Community Kitchen
  • Josh Eggleton from the fantastic The Pony Restaurant Group
  • Rose Lucas from beautiful Moonacre Farm

Ambassador and care leaver, Charli Brix will also give a special performance.

There will be welcome drinks on arrival, please BYOB for the remainder of the evening.

Enjoy some delicious food, support your local community, do some good.

About The MAZI Project

MAZI (μαζί) means together in Greek. This community initiative believes that we can challenge food inequality in Bristol, together.

MAZI's vision is a world where access to sustainable and tasty food is not a privilege or predetermined by your social class or background. Their mission is to challenge Bristol's food inequality by connecting disadvantaged young people with Bristol’s rich, independent food culture. What are their three pillars? Inclusivity, social justice and community.

Inclusivity: Creating a world where everyone can enjoy the power of food and are included in the conversation around it, no matter what's their social class or background.

Social justice: Contributing towards the fight against food poverty, sustainable food production, and the needs of the young people they work with.

Community: Working with the local community to contribute to growing the local economy and building a network of diverse connections, dedicated to making the world a better place. Their cookery workshops which work with disadvantaged members of the community do just this.

Your host

Melanie Vaxevanakis

Melanie was born in Athens and moved to the UK when she was 13. Being raised in Greece, a place where food is central to its culture and identity, and where fruit & veg is rarely imported, Melanie experienced food as much more than a means to human survival. It was emotive. It not only uplifted her mood, but when it was cooked and shared, she saw it as an act of love.

These experiences and memories, combined with witnessing people in her community being unable to access and feel the power of food, are what inspired Melanie to start MAZI in early 2021.

MAZI (μαζί) means together in Greek. Together, Melanie wants to make sure everyone has the opportunity to access fresh and tasty food.
