Five thousand members of the public are invited to a free hot lunch in Sydney’s Martin Place on Monday, 29 July between 12 noon and 2.00pm.
Feeding the 5000 is an event run by OzHarvest, one of Australia’s leading food-rescue organisations that was named the official Australian partner of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) global campaign - Think.Eat.Save.
Food will be made from rescued ingredients that would otherwise have been wasted, such as fresh but cosmetically imperfect fruit and vegetables, surplus cream or flour that would have been dumped or excess unused lemon juice! Feeding the 5000 will highlight how easy it is to reduce the unimaginable levels of food waste in Australia and internationally, and how governments, businesses and individuals can help.
Sydney’s top chefs along with hundreds of OzHarvest volunteers will unite against food waste and serve up a free meal to 5000 members of the public.
