Best Initiative Feeding the 5000We are honoured to announce that Feedback, including our three campaigns: Feeding the 5000, The Pig Idea and Gleaning Network UK, is this years winner of the BBC Radio 4 Food and Farming Award for Best Initiative in British Food. You can listen to the entire awards show here. Feeding the 5000 is on at 37 minutes.

We would like to extend a tremendous thank you to our thousands of volunteers whom without it would not have been possible.

We are truly humbled as other nominees included the fantastic Community Shop, a social supermarket offering surplus food, advice and training to people on benefits at very low cost. Community Shop uniquely combines environmental, social and business objectives to tackle food waste, food poverty and getting people out of the poverty trap. Sainsbury was also nominated for their important leadership and work in sustainable fish sourcing.

Since their beginnings, Feeding the 5000, The Pig Idea and Gleaning Network UK have been working hard to tackle the global food waste scandal. As founder, Tristram Stuart pointed out during the awards ceremony last week, “Feeding the 5000 is being adopted as a way of launching national food waste campaigns in lots of different countries. It has become a global movement and given everyone the realization that we have the power to change the food system.”
