Feeding the 5000

Manchester Feeds the 5000

20th June 2013

Thanks to all the volunteers who made this afternoon’s Feeding the 5000 event a success, and to the weather for giving us unbroken sunshine. All the delicious curry went within a couple of hours. We estimate we fed 4800 people. Not bad for 4 hours.

Manchester FoE teamed up with amazing organisations including EMERGE/FareShare North West, Cracking Good Food, FoodCycle, and the Feeding the 5000 team to bring the campaign to Manchester. The public were treated not only to free food but also bicycle-powered smoothies and cooking lessons.

Fill bellies, not bins. Sign the Feeding the 5000 pledge on www.feeding5k.org and spread the word! For more photos, see our Flickr album.
