Date: Friday May 9th

Time: 19:30-21:00, followed from drinks and nibbles

Venue: Jesus College, Habakkuk Room

Speakers: Tristram Stuart and Dr Sean Rickard

Come to Jesus College to hear from Tristram Stuart and Dr Sean Rickard about the issues surrounding global food wastage.

This event, hosted by Food Justice, will feature a debate between these two professionals who have long been involved in the food industry.

Tristram, founder of the 'Feeding the 5000' campaign and author of numerous books including 'Waste: Uncovering the Global Food Scandal', and Sean, ex-Chief Economist for the National Farmers' Union and founder of Sean Rickard Ltd, a consultancy that provides independent economic analysis of farming.

The event will run from 19:30-21:00 in the Habakkuk Room and will be followed from drinks and nibbles. We hope to see you all there!

Did you know that up to half our entire food supply is wasted between the farm and the fork? 

Or that the world's nearly one billion hungry people could be lifted out of malnourishment on less than a quarter of the food wasted in the US and Europe?

At this event, hosted by Food Justice, Tristram Stuart, author of 'WASTE' and founder of the 'Feeding the 5000' campaign, will be discussing the reasons for the global food waste scandal and how they can be tackled. There will also be a brief introduction to the many initiatives currently working to combat food waste and food poverty in the local community. 

Tristram will also be in town earlier in the day to introduce DISCO SOUP Oxford #2! Join us in Bonn Square from 12-6pm to make soup from produce that would otherwise have gone to waste, all to live music! Tristram has championed Disco Soup as an "unparalleled format for engaging new people in the [food waste] movement (and we love it!).” Please go to the Facebook Event to find out more!
