Feeding the 5000 – May 27th

On May 27th, Food Connections organized the biggest FREE LUNCH in Canada! Five thousand Vancouverites were fed on $0, all using food that would’ve been forgotten or wasted. Feeding the 5000 is a worldwide campaigning event that started in the UK to shine a light on the global food waste scandal. This spectacular communal feast featured a surprise 5-course menu prepared by culinary students and serve 6000 portions of delicious food to the public. Everything was made from fresh food that would otherwise have been wasted due to surplus ordering or aesthetic marketing standards. See more…

Our guests took away new ideas to use parts of ingredients they never thought could be used, learned creative recipes and insider tips on how to prolong the shelf-life of groceries. See more…
