Feeding the 5000

http://www.feeding5k.org

Feeding the 5000 is a campaign that aims to empower and inspire the global community to enact positive solutions to the global issue of food waste. We work with governments, businesses and civil society at the international level to catalyse change in social attitudes and innovative solutions necessary to tackle food waste at the global scale. Feeding the 5000 is also the name of the campaign’s flagship event where 5000 members of the public are given a delicious free lunch using only ingredients that otherwise would have been wasted. Held twice in Trafalgar Square (2009 and 2011), replica events have since been held internationally - including in Paris, Amsterdam and Dublin – and will be rolled out worldwide.

Rubies in the Rubble

http://www.rubiesintherubble.com

The more you put in, the more you get out. At Rubies in the Rubble, our aim is to make the tastiest chutney, in the nicest possible way. That’s why every one of our jars is packed with fresh fruit and veg, almost all of which would have otherwise gone to waste/unused. Western countries produce up to 300% more food than we actually need, while 1 billion people suffer from malnutrition. Fairer distribution of all that surplus food is the ideal but in the meantime, learning to value and put it to use in our own country is, we feel, a point of moral principle. We want our products to be a literal solution to food waste. But we also want them to stand as symbolic vehicles of our message- to consume less, think more, and be proud of it. So go on... have a dollop.

LaLa Lunchbox is a fun and easy way for kids to plan and pack lunches with their parents. It empowers your kids, teaches them to make smarter food choices and helps them learn about advance planning.
Your kids get to personalize and design their lunchboxes with fun monsters and colors, and then plan their lunches for a whole week at a time. They simply swipe their choices into their lunchbox from a large selection of fruits, vegetables, proteins, and snacks. Along the way, they learn that a balanced lunch includes items from each category. Parents can easily personalize and edit the items available to their kids.

HarvestGeek

http://www.harvestgeek.com

The core ideal which we believe at HarvestGeek is that the economics of large-scale industrial agriculture is not a sustainable proposition thus the need for efficient, tested and reproducible methods of small-scale food production. We'd like to see communities producing the bulk of their own food. The benefits to this we believe are many.
By empowering the local food movement, communities will benefit from new employment opportunities, money spent on food will stay in the community, fossil fuel use due to food transportation will drop off sharply, impoverished areas access to (healthy) food will increase, and we will be seeding a new generation with an appreciation for food, their health, and their connection to the Earth.
