King Charles, who turned 75 Tuesday, announced he wanted to use his birthday to shine the spotlight on a good cause, to officially launch the Coronation Food Project to address waste and food poverty.1
Charles’ project's main objective is to provide 200M meals to undernourished people in the UK.2
King Charles has spent more than five decades campaigning on environmental issues, as well as sustainability. In a recent article, he wrote, 'Food need is as real and urgent a problem as food waste.'3
The co-chair of the project, Baroness Louise Casey, stated their aims are to create distribution hubs that connect surplus food with food banks, and charities providing food parcels — claiming that one-in-five people suffer from food insecurity.4
The royal couple planned to meet with staff and volunteers at an organization that distributes surplus food to discuss how food waste can be repurposed for social good.5
Pro-establishment narrative, as provided by The Big Issue. The rising cost of living has put millions of Britons at risk for food insecurity. In an effort to raise awareness, King Charles has been planning the Coronation Food Project for months, using his 75th birthday to highlight the problem of food waste and hunger. King Charles is an outspoken campaigner on environmental issues and has spent his adult life working toward a sustainable economy.
Establishment-critical narrative, as provided by The Guardian. In a week when the former home secretary, Suella Braverman, described homelessness as a 'lifestyle choice,' King Charles suspiciously launched a new campaign to combat homelessness and food insecurity. Millions of Britons live with food insecurity in the middle of a cost-of-living crisis at a time when the government is plotting yet more welfare cuts.
