Forget farm to table, how about farm to office desk?
Some photos from yesterday's successful Feeding the 5K event in NYC. Congrats to all volunteers, organizers, and helpers for reaching your target to feed 5000 people!
Attention Greater NYC Metro Area: FEEDING THE 5000 IS COMING TO TOWN!
On Tuesday, May 10th from 11am-4pm, Feeding the 5000 NYC will be taking over the North Plaza of Manhattan’s historic Union Square Park. Thousands of members of the public will be provided with a delicious free feast, sourced entirely from fresh top-quality produce that would have otherwise been wasted. But that’s not all: 5000 further meals will also be prepared and transported to @[29095531180:274:City Harvest]’s network of soup kitchens and food pantries throughout the city!
Plus, in addition to the free lunch, there will be a variety of personalities and activities on the day, including top chefs Dan Barber, Jason Weiner, and Evan Hanczor, cooking demonstrations, smoothie-making on bike blenders, interactive quizzes, stalls featuring a variety of information and personalities from partner organizations, and more. We’re encouraging everyone, everywhere, to Take Food Waste #OFFTHEMENU!
As Feedback’s flagship campaign, Feeding the 5000 events showcase and promote the positive and delicious solutions to the global food waste crisis that a third of all food in the world is wasted from farm to fork. Feeding the 5000 NYC will bring together the public and an alliance of partner organizations to raise awareness of the scale of food waste in the U.S. and globally. The event aims to highlight social and environmental impact of food waste while simultaneously promoting the many easy and tasty solutions to the problem. New York City’s own priorities for this issue will be front and center. Most importantly, this celebratory and festive event is open to all!
Want a free meal? Just show up. (And then tell your friends!)
