5000 People to be Fed in Sydney

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.


The feeding 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 - Reduce your Foodprint".

Food will be made from rescued ingredients that would otherwise have been wasted, such as fresh but cosmetically imperfect fruit and vegetables. The event 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.

Some of 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. On the menu will be curries made from 'mis-shapen' and wonky vegetables that might have not made the supermarket shelves – served to 5000 members of the public.

When: Monday, 29 July 2013
Time: 12 noon - 2.00 pm
where: Martin Place, Sydney
