Feeding the 5,000









On Wednesday 16th December, Trafalgar Square will host a free feast of biblical proportions: a modern day Feeding the 5000.

From 12-2pm, a partnership of campaigners, charities and prominent supporters will serve lunch to 5000 members of the public to highlight the problem of food waste, and the many practical ways to solve it. Rich countries like the UK currently waste up to half of their food supplies. All the food handed out on the day to passers-by will be made from fresh and nutritious ingredients that otherwise would have been wasted.

The menu will include hot soups made from vegetables cast out because they are not cosmetically perfect, a range of sandwiches and freshly-made fruit smoothies, pressed on the day by customised bicycles.
