Hold a curry night
Get cooking for CAFOD! By holding a curry night, you can have fun, eat some delicious food, and raise funds to transform the lives of people overseas.
How to organise your own online curry night
1. Get people involved!
Ask your friends and family who can cook (or at least are prepared to have a go!) to get involved. Make sure that people make a variety of curries so that there is a good selection. Buy Fairtrade and organic ingredients where possible.
2. Set up your event
Hold your event within your household, or host it on an online platform. Zoom, Google Meet, and Houseparty are just some of the platforms that offer free group video calls where you can show off your creations and eat together. Set a time and date.
3. Promote your curry night
Use social media to spread the word! You could even notify the local press, or put a notice in your parish newsletter. See our top ten tips for more ideas on how to promote your event.
4. Get cooking!
Ask each of your cooks to share the recipes for their curries online, so that people can recreate their favourites. Ask for a donation for recipes which people use.
5. Hold your curry night
When you get together for your event, make sure you spend plenty of time showing of the different curries that have been created. Give people plenty of time to talk about their different flavours and ingredients, and then allow time for comments and questions, but make sure the food doesn’t get cold. Be sure to have a drink or two of your choice ready!
