Feeding the 5000

26th Sep 13 by fb_admin

Feeding the 5000 is our flagship campaigning event to shine a light on the global food waste scandal, champion the delicious solutions and catalyse the global movement. At each event, 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.

Want to organise your own Feeding the 5000? Check out our toolkit!

Our first ever Feeding the 5000 event was held in London’s Trafalgar Square in 2009. Since then Feeding the 5000 events have been held worldwide; from Paris to Dublin, Manchester, New York, Sydney, Amsterdam and Brussels. In each location the events have had a lasting impact and catalysed action on a local and national level.

As part of these events, local communities are encouraged to become involved, be it through volunteering or attending. The public is also invited to sign up to the Food Waste Pledge, committing themselves to reduce their food waste and asking businesses and governments to do the same.
