Feeding the 5000
Public feasts to showcase the delicious solutions to food waste
Feeding the 5000 shines a light on the global food waste scandal, champions the delicious solutions and catalyses the global movement. To date Feedback and our partners have hosted over 40 Feeding the 5000 events around the world, where we serve up a delicious communal feast for 5000 people made entirely out of food that would otherwise have been wasted. We bring together a coalition of organisations that offer the solutions to food waste, raising the issue up the political agenda and inspiring new local initiatives.
What's the problem?
Food production is the human activity with the single biggest impact on our planet. We grow our food at huge environmental cost and then we waste around a third of all food produced around the world. Food waste represents a tragic loss of precious resources such as land and water – this is a climate change issue. Our Feeding the 5000 events have put food waste on the global agenda and highlighted that we cannot tackle climate change if we do not build a food system that nourishes the planet.
What's the solution?
No one likes to see good food going to waste, at Feeding the 5000 events the public gets to see the scale of food waste first hand and learn that the solutions are delicious. The events bring together a coalition of organisations and engage politicians at the local and national level. Feeding the 5000 creates and acts as a catalyst for change.
