As a wedding catering company the global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for our small family run businesses.

We're still collecting donations

On the 25th May 2020 we'd raised £4,371 with 48 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

 New stretch target

With the extra funding we would be able to increase the timeframe to get a second vehicle on the road as well as taking on a commited member to be able to cater for multiple events at once.

The Meat Thief - Outdoor Event Catering Company (est. 2015)

With every year since the summer of 2016 the business has been progressing with an ever increasing number of catering events throughout the season.

In the early days of March 2020 we had started to get ready for our upcoming season of wedding and many other events which we had been booked to cater for.

With our first wedding booked in for Friday 27th March, we were excited about the season ahead, we had started to check all equipment, check our staff availability for dates and clear and clean all equipment for our events. Order items that are required and getting the summer plan ready..

From the start of March we started to get concerned brides calling to ask about their wedding catering, at the time we were following government guidance however it soon became clear that our customers were starting to cancel and postpone weddings and events.

We have refunded all our customers whom have requested to postpone or cancel their events.

With a number of events now postponed until the winter we understand the challenges of catering outside in uncertain weather and feel that we need to adapt our current fair weather setup for a more robust system that would be capable to withstand certain issues that do not arise in the summer.

We have started this Crowd funder page to offer our customers a way of supporting us though this difficult times and offering never before catering deals for those looking to have a post lockdown get together.

We are looking for this funding to help support our business through the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and help us to grow our business so we are able to provide a fantastic year round service to our customers.

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
