Author and Founder of the Initiative Feeding the 5000
Tristram Stuart launched a food waste campaign by organising “Feedeing the 5000” in London. The campaign is a flagship event of a global food waste campaign where 5000 members of the public are given a free lunch using only ingredients that otherwise would have been wasted. Since then the event took place twice in Trafalgar Square (2009 and 2011) and the Feeding the 5000 team have now launched replica events and campaigns internationally, and has now been commissioned to work globally in partnership with the European Commission and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP). Tristram Stuart is the winner of the international environmental award, The Sophie Prize 2011, for his fight against food waste. He has become a renowned campaigner, working in several countries to help improve the environmental and social impact of food production. His latest international prize-winning book is named “Waste: Uncovering the Global Food Scandal”.
