A Big Lunch is being held at King George V Park in Mansfield today. The organisers of the event are trying to show how much food the average family wastes a year.
The feed the 1,000 challenge will aim to feed most people visiting the park on the average amount of money a family wastes a year - £700. Across the UK the average amount of money spent on food that ends up in landfill is around £12 billion.
Communities came together in June last year for a 'Big Lunch' event in Nottinghamshire.
It highlighted just how much food is thrown away. But this year the national event has got a lot bigger!
In recent years thousands of people have gathered for lunch on the first Sunday of June. The meet is part of the Big Lunch programme which aims to encourage as many local communities as possible to organise lunches.
This year's official launch date in Sunday June 1.
