Food Waste Awareness Week + Social Good

Sep 21, 2013 - Sep 21, 2013

Feeding the 5000, Food Tank UNEP and many other partners will launch Food Waste week in NYC in the Fall with a goal of tackling food waste. The plan is to put on a massive celebratory event where at least 5000 people are given a free meal made from food that otherwise would have been wasted; and in coming together for this celebration they help create a collaborative platform to push the issues and the profile of the alliance’s partners up the agenda for businesses, people and politicians. As of yet, they have helped change the landscape in the UK and have now replicated the campaign with enormous impact in France, Ireland, Italy, Norway and have launches this year in Amsterdam, Lisbon, Sydney, Copenhagen, NYC among others.
