Graduates from Compass Group UK & Ireland partnered with London based charity 2nd Chance to host a pop up restaurant on the HMS Belfast last week.
The event gave 20 associates from 2nd Chance the opportunity to gain experience working in a professional kitchen as part of the "Secret Kitchen" initiative.
Seven graduates helped organise the event, which saw Andrew Walker, executive chef of Chartwells take on the role of head chef for the evening leading a team of 15.
It was attended by 125 visitors including the Mayor of Southwark, featuring a menu of kiln roast salmon to start, and followed by hay roast chicken for main and panna cotta for dessert.
Graduate Kirsty Harris from Compass Group UK & Ireland, said: "This has been such a great learning experience for us all and I am thrilled with that we were able to achieve such a great event with 2nd Chance.
"Not only has it raised money for charity but it has been amazing to see the associates from 2nd Chance gain hands on experience in a professional kitchen while we have been put through our paces organising and hosting the event.
"We chose to work with 2nd Chance to create the Secret Kitchen pop up restaurant over a three-night period, in order to raise as much money as we could for 2nd Chance itself, and raise awareness of what fantastic work they do with the 2nd Chance associates."
The event was held as part of a Compass Group charity challenge that the 2015 intake of graduates were set at the beginning of the year.
They were tasked with turning £400 into £4,000 for charity by planning and organising their own projects within a year.
2nd Chance is a specialist education to employment training course created to support unemployed 18-24 year olds develop their careers.
