Event Description:
On Saturday 5th October, in Edinburgh’s Bristo Square, 5,000 people will be invited to share a deli­cious free meal cre­ated by volun­teers, celebrity chefs and com­munity groups from ingredi­ents that might oth­er­wise have been thrown away. The meal will be served between noon and 4pm. 
This will be the very first time that Scotland has hos­ted a Feeding the5000 event (http://www.feeding5k.org) and fol­lows events in cit­ies around the world includ­ing London, Sydney and New York.
This event is being co-ordin­ated by Nourish Scotland in close co-oper­a­tion with sev­er­al part­ners includ­ing the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh University Students’ Association , the City of Edinburgh Council and Zero Waste Scotland.
The fest­iv­al will raise the public’s aware­ness of the whole food agenda and provide every­one with an oppor­tun­ity to con­trib­ute to a big con­ver­sa­tion about what sort of food strategy we would like for Edinburgh in the com­ing years and dec­ades.
