5,000 People Get Free Lunch Made From ‘Ugly’ Fruits And Vegetables

Here is something to chew on.

The London-based environmental nonprofit, Feedback, fed 5,000 people in Washington, DC, for free during its “Feeding the 5000” event on Wednesday. The lunches, which will be served from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., are available to anyone who shows up. The organization, along with DC Central Kitchen and other local foodies will cook up veggie curry and meat chili made from ingredients that would have otherwise been thrown away.
