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.
