Having a blast party (23/02)

More info and signup here

On Friday the 23rd of February, De Sering is organising and hosting its own fundraising party! In classic De Sering style, this evening can be anything you want it to be: with both TestTafel and Volkskeuken food, live music, performances, DJs and games


What are we fundraising for?

We are making more and more food at De Sering. Many weeks we now serve up to a thousand meals! While we would like to cook more we are running into a big equipment problem that caps the amount of food that we can cook, cooling! 
When we cook all those hundreds of liters of food on Sunday (and many other day’s) we also make hundreds of liters of very hot problems that need to be cooled down as quickly as possible. The coolers that we have can no longer handle this amount of food, and we need a specialized machine, the chill blaster, to solve this problem. A chill blaster is a kind of reverse oven, capable of cooling vast amounts of food really quickly. 
Now that it's winter we can cool our food outside. But if we don't find another solution before march we need to reduce the amount of food we can cook and serve. 
So help the fundraiser! Come by yourself, bring all your friends, tell your friends to bring their friends.
