At the age of 15, he bought some pigs and fed them on the leftovers of the school canteen and from other local businesses. Then, as an environmentalist, he knew that to grow more food, rain forests were cutting down and still billions of people remains hungry.
In 2009, he launched “Feeding the 5000”. This free public feast of food that would otherwise be wasted has been replicated around the world.
