Feeding The 5000 (well 4,324 actually!)

Jun 4 2013

Working together with Fareshare Southwest and The Thali Cafe, we cooked up a free feast  for Bristol’s Feeding The 5000 event last weekend (Saturday 1 June).  The day saw nearly 5000 people get together on College Green to enjoy a delicious free curry made with perfectly good produce that would have otherwise gone to waste.  This great event highlighted some serious issues surrounding food waste and food poverty and Bristol is working towards becoming the UK’s first city where all surplus food is used for its purpose. Find out more about Fareshare Southwest and what you can do to help here.

And you can have a go at making your own Bin man’s curry at home (scaled here to feed 6, not 5000!)
