Free Lunch Served at the European Parliament to Highlight Food Waste Issue

freelucnhteamWe the undersigned want to challenge the current model of production and consumption and build on alternative ways that are good for the planet, animals and people. We support a truly sustainable system which focuses on nutritional quality, on preservation of soil and biodiversity, on protecting farmers’ livelihoods as well as animal welfare, on reducing waste and adulteration in the food supply and on true long-term solutions rather than the false quick fixes of fertilisers, pesticides and GMOs.

The Free Lunch is a sustainable food event being organised by Compassion in World FarmingHumane Society InternationalBeyond GM & Food for Life Global and the Sustainable Food Systems Group

The Free Lunch is being facilitated by the kind help of Elite EventsDolma – Restaurant végétarienBakkerij Filip, the Gleaning Network Belgium and Feedback.

FREELUNCHWe have distributed nearly 1500 meals on Esplanade at the European Parliament and to refugees in Maximilian Park in Brussels.

You may have heard that there is no such thing as a free lunch. However, we are offering just that. Not only is this lunch free from meat, dairy, egg, sugar, additives, pesticides, and GMOs, it will free up waste by using surplus vegetables. Choosing seasonal, locally grown delicious plant-based meals frees up land, water and other resources, such as fossil fuels, used to produce animal products. Plant-based meals free biodiversity from the threats of industrial food production, and free animals from lifelong confinement and suffering. And, making regular plant-based meal choices can help free you from the increased risk of dietary related non-communicable diseases.

Break free with a free lunch!
