Awareness raising events on food waste have boomed the past 3 years across Europe.
Some examples include:
- Feeding the 5000 events. Feeding the 5000 is Feedback’s flagship campaigning event against food waste. At each event, volunteers serve 5000 people meals made entirely out of food that would otherwise have been wasted, bringing together a coalition of organisations that offer the solutions to food waste, raising the issue up the political agenda and inspiring new local initiatives against food waste.
- Stop Wasting Food movement Denmark (Stop Spild Af Mad) events. Stop Spild Af Mad is Denmark's largest non-profit consumer movement against food waste. Set up by consumers for consumers, Stop Wasting Food is an NGO that has constructively shaped public opinion in its drive to prevent food waste. It seeks to increase public awareness of the throwaway society by organizing campaigns, mobilizing the press and media, and encouraging discussion, debate and events of all kinds, all with the aim of decreasing the current mountains of food waste.
