WHAT + WHY
Feeding the 5000 Austin will take food that would have otherwise gone to landfills and serve a delicious, communal feast for 5,000 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.
