Feeding the 5000 LA
Date(s) - 04/May/2017
11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Feeding the 5000 is proud to be part of the Los Angeles Food Bowl festival!
Join us on May 4 in Downtown LA, Pershing Square, for a delicious feast made entirely from fresh, top quality produce that would otherwise have gone to waste.
There’s no shortage of fabulous food in Los Angeles. Yet every year millions of tons of it is wasted, at huge cost to our planet. Come dine with your colleagues, friends and family and learn how LA can act to take food waste off the menu.
In addition to the free lunch, there will be a variety of personalities and activities on the day, including top chefs such as Monica May from the Nickel Diner. We will have cooking demonstrations, interactive quizzes, stalls featuring fun workshops from local experts creating change and much, much more.
For the schedule of the talks and cooking demos, click here.
We’re encouraging everyone, everywhere to get involved and take food waste off the menu.
