Tristram Stuart is the winner of the international environmental award, The Sophie Prize 2011, for his fight against food waste. Following the critical success of Tristram's first book, The Bloodless Revolution (2006), 'a genuinely revelatory contribution to the history of human ideas', Tristram has become a renowned campaigner, working in several countries to help improve the environmental and social impact of food production. His latest international prize-winning book, Waste: Uncovering the Global Food Scandal (Penguin, 2009), revealed that Western countries waste up to half of their food, and that tackling this problem is one of the simplest ways of reducing pressure on the environment and on global food supplies. Tristram is the founder of the charity Feedback [] which governs the Feeding the 5000 campaigns, The Gleaning Network UK and The Pig Idea. Feedback works with governments, businesses and civil society to catalyse change in social attitudes and demonstrate innovative solutions to tackle food waste at the global scale. Feeding the 5000 is Feedback's flagship event where 5000 members of the public are given a delicious free lunch using only ingredients that otherwise would be wasted. Held twice in Trafalgar Square (2009 and 2011), the Feeding the 5000 team have now launched replica events and campaigns internationally. These events aim to catalyse the global movement against food waste, bringing together a coalition of organisations that offer the solutions to food waste, raising the issue up the political agenda and inspiring new local initiatives against food waste.
