Feeding the 5000 Toulouse – Les Banquet des 5000 Toulouse
French organisations France Nature Environnement Midi-Pyrénées and Disco Soupe Toulouse are joining forces to hold a Banquet des 5000 (Feeding the 5000) in Toulouse. It will take place on July 23rd, from 11:30am on the allées Jules Guesde in the city centre. The feast will be followed by a Traveler on Stage from 6pm to 10pm.
For this occasion, people will be offered a free feast, open to all and only made of fruits and vegetables that were wrongly supposed to go to waste. The aim is to raise awareness among the general public about the impact and the breadth of food waste. It will also be a great opportunity for organisations, businesses or people fighting against food waste to show that solutions and local alternatives exist. The different partners’ stalls will enable people to discuss more generally about a fairer and healthier system of consumption.
After that, a Traveler on Stage will take place. Nine travelers are coming to talk about their trips, for about six minutes each: a perfect moment to share experiences in a nice and friendly atmosphere. The entrance ticket costs 5€ (presale and sales on site).
We need you! To organize such a big event, FNE Midi-Pyrénées and Disco Soupe Toulouse need volunteers and good will! They are absolutely welcome to help planning, before, during and after the event. Tasks are as diverse as communications, logistics, food service, media coverage. It is also possible to support the organisers by making a donation on the website, or by lending some equipment (festival tents, furniture…).
