In October 2017, over a year since the inaugural Feeding the 5000 event in the US, Feeding the 5000 is coming to Austin, Texas!

WHAT + WHY

Feeding the 5000 Austin will take food that would have otherwise gone to the landfill and serve a delicious, communal feast for 5000 people. The event is designed to increase awareness around the magnitude of food waste and to empower community members to make informed decisions about buying and using food. Around 40% of food produced is wasted while 1 in 6 people within the United States are food insecure. We have a distribution problem.
