Scarf Dinners 2021 After COVID put a stop to seasonal programs and Scarf Dinners in 2020, we're quietly making optimistic plans to get back to partnering with restaurants soon! We're planning to run some 'Pop Up' Scarf Dinners in May (as part of our Tasting Plate for Women program), details of which will be announced in mid-late April. Pending the findings from an evaluation project we're currently undertaking, we hope to move back to regular, seasonal Scarf Dinners from July. The pandemic means there's lots to consider, especially in creating a safe training/work environment for our trainees, volunteer mentors and staff, and ensuring a safe dining experience for customers. And of course, we're conscious of working sensitively and sustainably with partner restaurants after the hospitality industry has endured such a destabilising year, and continues to face challenges as it rebuilds. But we are hopeful and as soon as we can share some concrete updates about Scarf Dinners, we will! We'd love you to stay in touch during this time, as we have lots of other news to share and plenty of ways you can help us deliver our mission and aims during this strange time.
