Trafalgar Square, London

Wednesday 16th December 2009

12 noon - 2pm

After the enormous success of the first event in 2009, Feeding the 5000 returns to London this year on the 18th of November. During lunchtime on Trafalgar Square, the Feeding the 5000 team will once again provide a free feast of literally Biblical proportions made entirely out of fresh ingredients that would otherwise go to waste � wonky carrots, mis-shapen potatoes and other fresh surplus produce. Our aim is to highlight the ease of cutting the unimaginable levels of food waste in the UK and internationally.

There will be 5000 portions of free hot curry served, live cooking demonstrations and plenty of other activities to get stuck in on the day, all of which will involve enjoying delicious food rather than throwing it away. We will also invite citizens and businesses to all join in a pledge to reduce food waste. More details will be announced soon, so stay tuned!

This year, Feeding the 5000 is organised by Tristram Stuart with the support of the Mayor of London and in partnership with FareShare, FoodCycle, Friends of the Earth, Love Food Hate Waste and Recycle for London.

"I think it's a brilliant way of highlighting the problem of food waste and it's a massive problem. I hope government and big business including the supermarkets will take it as a rallying cry to do their bit to help."
