We served Canada’s biggest free lunch ever using surplus food that would’ve otherwise been wasted!

Feeding the 5000 (metro) Vancouver put the topic of food waste back on the table. Everything on the menu will come from industry donors. All of the fresh, delicious food would otherwise have been wasted. A 3-course lunch served by culinary students and volunteers. It was covered by CBC National Radio, Metro News, World Journal,the Loop, Huffington Post, CKNW AM 980, Vancouver Sun, Global News, Metro News, The Province, and Vancouver is Awesome!

It was grassroots “lunch and learn” on a grand scale. Those attending got a tasty free lunch, an appreciation of food waste in the region, connections with those already taking action to reduce waste, as well as ideas for reducing food waste in their own lives.
